Could someone explain to me how exactly it ended up that USB's initial champion and popularizer (Apple w/ the original iMac) ended up getting screwed sortof by USB in the long run? I mean, Firewire was basically created by Apple whereas USB is an Intel technology. Initially, the two complimented each other in that Firewire was for the big transfer rate stuff like external hds and av stuff, while USB was cheaper and more convenient for stuff like mice and keyboards. But then USB2.0 came out and basically took the bulk of Firewire's business away. Can anyone explain how this happened? Is it Apple's fault ie did they screw something up? Or did Intel use dirty tricks to get hardware manufacturers to go with USB2.0 when Firewire was already available and just as good, or what? I'm very interested in knowing what the history between these two is.
