Default Parallel-ATA and Ultra ATA

So, there I was...minding my own business while browsing, when BAM! hit me.

Now, don't take me for a fool...I know that Ultra ATA is parallel and all that other good stuff, but what I want to know is if there is ANY difference or did they just feel like being retards and so they slapped the "Parallel" tag infront of the ATA tag because they're *******? Because even though it says "Parallel-ATA" instead of the usual "Ultra ATA" it still is Ultra ATA! Argh...stupid companies.

So, I'm assuming the only difference between the two is that the one labeled Ultra ATA (which is; in fact, still parallel) is only Ultra ATA 100 while the one labaled Parallel-ATA (which is; in fact, still Ultra) has Ultra ATA 133. WTF? People these days....[/rant]
