Why Wires Still Rule

During my recent desktop shopping spree, I made sure my new rig would be Bluetooth and WiFi capable. After all, why miss out on two features that proved really useful on my laptop?

Yet if recent experiences are any indicator, the wired setup still rules. I’m still glad I got Bluetooth and WiFi though, as they grant my desktop a certain degree of versatility. Yet now my rig is hooked up via Ethernet to my router. Surfing the web and downloading files proved faster through this setup. At the same time, I decided to buy a USB cable for my phone, no longer relying on Bluetooth for syncs and backups. Again, same reason: transferring data via cables is much faster.

One of these days, transferring data wirelessly will be a near instantaneous process. Right now however, if you want to maximize your data transfer speeds, it still makes sense to go wired.

    You are right, if you want to transfer big files across the network, with wired it will be faster. For everything else, wireless can compete if you have the right equipment and a good setup.
