The article says Another advantage of A.b is that devices can be strung together into a single daisy-chain—A.b can support, but does not require, the use of hubs. This can reduce cable-clutter significantly.

I thought that USB devices could be used in a daisy-chain.

I realize this comment is rather old, but I'll reply anyway. USB devices cannot daisy chain unless the device happens to come with a hub inside of it. Many devices do just that, as hubs are often relatively cheap compared to the cost of the device, and the ability to daisy chain is handy. A.b can daisy chain without the use of a seperate (even if within the same package) hub. --Intx13 21:48, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Is ACCESS.bus not an extension of I2C developed by companies that were part of the Advanced Computing Environment for connecting low speed serial peripherals like keyboards and mice? Giving Phillips all the credit seems to be a misleading to me even though they did do most of the work. Rilak (talk) 11:05, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
