Over the past few months multiple rumors emerged claiming that Apple would adopt USB 3.0 for their line of Macs. Since this is yet to happen, reader, Tom Kruk e-mailed the man in charge asking why he cannot order a Mac with USB 3.0.

Jobs’ Reply:

We don’t see USB 3 taking off at this time. No support from Intel, for example.

According to Jobs USB 3 is not exactly never happening and it looks like they are simply waiting on Intel to adopt the platform. He says Apple does not “see USB 3 taking off at this time” leaving the possibility of Macs with USB 3 for the future.
