Intel: Rockstar Status. Mr. Ajay V. Bhatt

OMG! Can you imagine how cool it would be to meet the co-inventor of the USB device? Yes, that's right, the U-S-to-the-mother-freaking-B. Well, if you've been absent from this planet for the last 10 yrs, this probably won't excite you. So, for all of you electronically impaired individuals, i'll do a quick recap. The USB, has revolutionized the world of electronics, and you use it every single day, and probably haven't even noticed. It's what you use to upload music into your ipod, sync your devices to your computer, download pics into your PC or MAC from your digital camera, attach your printer to your computer with, charge the lithium batter on your phone, recharge that favorite blue tooth of yours, so on and so forth. Practically every single thing invented nowadays, especially every FREAKING computer in the galaxy, has to, and I mean has to, be compatible with a USB port for a USB cable. EVERYTHING!!! OMG! Can you say $$$$$-Cha-Ching. Before the USB was invented, everything was plugged in with PARALLEL PORT ADAPTORS! (pictured below) YUK!!!



Remember these things? Some of our comp's still use them for video devices like the monitor and stuff. But haven't USB's made life a bit easier? Just imagine having to screw and unscrew that gigantic thing every time you wanted to add a new song to your Ipod's playlist?
No way Jose!

Now what would it be like to meet this guy. Wouldn't he have like "Rockstar" status in the world of gizmos and gadgets aficionados? I'm sure you've probably seen the commercial that Intel has done poking fun at this idea, with a smooth man (I love his hair lol) playing the role of Mr. Ajay Bhatt, co-inventor of the USB. No, that's not the real Mr. Bhatt in the commercial, but this other dude just became famous in about 30 seconds lmao!

The real Mr. Ajay V. Bhatt (pictured on the left), and I keep saying Mr. because this man has made billions of lives just a bit easier, and much more enjoyable-Gracias!-is the Intel Fellow and Chief Client Architect for Mobile Platforms Group, Intel Corporation. According to a column on Intel's own website, www.intel.com, Mr. Bhatt has not only been a developmental force behind the USB, but also the Accelerated Graphic Port, PCI Express, Platform Power management architecture and various chipset enhancements. Mr. Bhat holds nine U.S. patents with several in various stages of filing. But hold up everyone, get this, what's even crazier, and this blew me backwards, is that Mr. Bhat received his master's degree from The City University of New York. That's right, CUNY baby! I wonder why they haven't put this guy in one of those "Look who's at CUNY" posters of our subway trains. Come on now! The inventor of the USB. Educated in NYC? Woohoo! Go CUNY. I'm a City College Alumni myself and this makes me proud. Woohoo!

Can you imagine how much money this guy's making? OMG!!! OK enough excitement. Check out the commercial. lmao! Rockstar status baby!

Okay you will know instantly that I am an engineer. The parallel port is still a very useful development tool. I would like to know where I can get one of the USB to Parallel port adapters as shown in the post as the standard ones designed for printers will not work with devices like EEPROM and microcontroller programmers or be used as a full ECP/EPP parallel port.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Now Sam, as you may already know, I know almost nothing about engineering. I'm more of a comedian/writer than anything lol. I found the pic of the "USB to Parallel port adapter" online somewhere, but I can't recall where. I just used it as a cool pic for my post. Sorry man.

Take Care
