I don't know why they haven't upgraded their ports.. Im guessing serial does the job fine..
inner workings of programmable controllers, barcode scanners or other industrial equipment are different to... maybe its not worth the trouble to upgrade the factories that produce the stuff, when its not going to change much.

Some anti-theft systems (burglar alarms) have Serial access terminals also..

500th post.... yay me..lol
