I'm not sure if someone has posted this before, sorry if this is a repost! I didn't believe Apple would be dropping FireWire in the first place (iMovie anyone?) But here's real proof, from Apple, that Firewire will stay with the Intel Transition: http://developer.apple.com/document...reDI/FWDevEndianness/chapter_5_section_1.html This is a developer document for Firewire device access on an Intel-based Mac, and how to port PowerPC apps that use FireWire to universal binaries. Everything will be clear in 10 days! Dang, I wish I could go to Macworld!
