    Exactly what kind of Firewire devices is this article talking about? Is this an issue for home use? :confused:

    I'm suing you now. You didn't say anything about steak knives and I stuck one in a power outlet. My right arm is completely useless, and so are my right ear and nostril. I hope you're happy :mad:



    BWA HAHAHAHAH I MADE TEH FUNNAY!!

    Hmmm... that may be why I can't remember any of yesterday.. or today for the matter...

    I like this part:
    It can't and won't. I'm not about to 'disable' any of the ports on my machine, thank you VERY much.

    Nah, it's not really a problem at home. For companies and for any machines in public areas, it does pose some serious issues. FW and USB drives make it trivial to steal data that otherwise would be safely locked up on a server.
