If you really want apple to know how pi**ed you are - clog their tubes with something like this

I'm sure it takes less time for them to close stuff like this then for you do report it.

There are proper feedback pages where your voice is more likely to be heard

Nobody is forcing you to buy the MacBook, or any Apple product, you do know this I presume?

Actually the bug reporting tool is also one of those legitimate feedback and feature request pages - you just have to choose another option in the dropdown box

At least you'll get a ticket number and maybe someone will respond to the ticket, whereas the official feedback web-form seems to be a no-response-black hole

I have a Video camera that I want to upgrade anyway but all my other items are all USB 2.0. I actually think the MBP should lose the FW and add another USB 2.0

I thought FW 800 was back-compatible with 400? Just used a different cable?

It is. Just like USB 2.0 is backwards compatible to USB 1.1.
