"DDR4?"

Obviously not.

1) Not a single DDR4 stick is for sale in public retail channels like Newegg and it's only about 8 months from Haswell's launch.

2) Based on #1, we can infer that DDR4 would be more expensive than DDR3 even if some DDR4 sticks are released in 2013. This is because to achieve economies of scale, you need volume production and sales. DDR4 won't be able to achieve that in only 5-6 months.

3) DDR4 was never rumored for socket 1150, only for workstations/enterprise markets.

USB2 must die. Please just make 8x USB3 and scrap USB2 from the board altogether

Agreed, once they kill off USB2 altogether then companies will start to make all their products USB3 compatible speeding up everything, man I can't wait until than happens :)
