Bus-powered != self-powered.

Self-powered means that it has its own power cord.

Bus-powered means that it gets its power from the USB cable.

Unlike Greg, I would have said that bus-powered hubs
can be a problem -- especially when you plug too many
devices into them that need lots of power. What we saw
at the USB PlugFest was hubs just shutting down when
we did this. :(
