comment Why hasn't micro-USB replaced all others?
@Narcolapser Well, yes and no. Cables with higher diameter would be better. On the other hand USB uses two data cables using differential signaling. That means that cables should be close together in order to minimize noise. Also standard cables can be used with micro connectors. @Jay Bazuzi I read somewhere that mini is considered deprecated, so that's a plus for micro. You are right about accessibility.

Actually, USB 2 is backwards compatible to USB 1. It should just be slower. Nothing bad can happen if he tries to connect the phone to the computer. At worst, nothing will happen.

comment Web browser memory usage
+1 for flash. I've had experience with some sites done in flash where couple of open tabs will eat couple of GiBs of RAM. This happened mostly in flash 10.0. Since I moved to 10.1 I haven't seen it again.
