USB 3.0 denotes a better user experience in terms of transfer of data using USB devices. Wikipedia says: "USB 3.0 is the third major version of the Universal Serial Bus (USB) standard for computer connectivity. Among other improvements, USB 3.0 adds a new transfer mode called "SuperSpeed" (SS), capable of transferring data at up to 5 Gbit/s (625 MB/s), which is more than ten times as fast as the 480 Mbit/s (60 MB/s) high speed of USB 2.0."
So when you buy a new computer, make sure that it has at least one USB 3.0 port.

The UP Manila IMS would like to inform the UP Manila community that the IMS is offering free use of resources for your video or teleconferencing needs. At its new office at the Information Technology Center at the old NEDA Compound in Padre Faura, the IMS has allocated a room dedicated for the said resources.

In his opening remarks, IMS Director Romeo L. Villarta introduced three facilities hosted by the ITC, namely, improved Training Room, CCTV Room and Teleconferencing Room.
