Yes, but what does it show? We load data as binary? Is there any other kind of data to load into a computer? Why is data transferred in a circular fashion and not back through the path it took the first time.

No, it does not matter. It just graphic showing me that it's working... But the actual images seems to be marketing... Typically communication is shown as trafic going from one computer to another an then back to the first. Same with the binary stuff. Binary data is usually received in a serial fashion, not in random orden and placed into a stream the way the graphic depicts it.

It just looks like marketing tries to show something techies will be amused by and they're failing miserably.
