comment How do I receive incoming Google Voice calls using Empathy?
It doesn't work for me either. Should we point to the google voice plugin or something? What version of empathy does this work on? I have ubuntu 12.04 also and am not getting notified of calls.

comment How to troubleshoot slow USB2.0
I don't have access to a windows installation to test on windows, but I get 30,000 kB_wrtn/s when running ubuntu 11.10 32 bit from a USB drive (note that the transfer for this test is from a fixed disk to a USB stick, separate from the USB drive that ubuntu is installed on). I think this points more to driver issues than hardware issues.
