    USB port
    USB 1.0, 2.0 n now 3.0...
    As what I know the USB head consists of 4 wires. Can anyone explain:

    1. Wat are the 4 wires and their functions?

    2. most importantly, how does these wire transfer data?
    ( I mean like is it really it transfer in binary voltage pulse form to represent a signal?Im trying to use the basic analogue communication mindset, signal and freq stuff... )
    ( If so, if the signal is distorted, wouldn't it be transferring wrong data to the other terminal? Taking a video as example, if the signal is distorted, then wouldn't it be like watching weird things in the video?. )

    3. wats the main difference of USB 1.0 , 2.0 n 3.0 apart from speed transferring?
