Take a look at this: Already mentioned in articles on MacBytes, Apple has left out the firewire on the newest iPods and will be deleting it from upcoming iPods. FW is superior to USB and Apple is just using USB to cater to the majority of iPod owners: PC users. They're putting Mac owners second. Another example, more literally... When I look at my Airport Express box or iPod photo box, I see bold writing that says: Mac + PC. I've now noticed that with the iPod shuffle and the new minis, that has been changed to PC + Mac. Small changes, but still- it IS putting the Macintosh second.
