    According to the latest issue of Mac Addict and a post on MacSlash, the word "FireWire" is now in the Oxford English Dictionary. That is SO AWESOME!!!
    Supposedly the word is defined as "a standard high-performance serial bus for connecting devices to a personal computer".

    That's awesome, now I am just waiting for the definition for "Apple" to be something along the lines of "A high end computer company delivering stable, quality alternatives to Windows based PCs"
