discussed USB with P

Phil asked about USB cables, hubs, maximum lengths. He thinks he needs cable runs of 16 feet or more. He had learned that amplified cables could go up to 150'. I suggested he try his powered hub first. I reviewed the specs: "USB 2.0 provides for a maximum cable length of 5 meters for devices running at Hi Speed (480 Mbit/s)."
