Here is the link if you want Link I was just wondering if this was true that Apple doesn't say on the PC packgage for the iPod that you need a firewire port. I'm sure it does, but this guy makes it seem like Apple is at fault. Also, I know this guy is entitled to his own opinion and everything, but is he actually saying that USB is better than Firewire. If he was making an arguement for USB 2.0 then I would just disagree and let it be, but USB 1 is so slow for transfering files espicially when you get to gigs of data. I would almost think that an external USB hard drive is useless now. Of course, I know that PC's are slow to accept new technology and have legacy issues, buyt why doesn't the guy just argue for parallel ports since all PC's have those (trust me, some PC users don't even now what USB is still). The iPod was designed to be the cream of the crop when it came to MP3 players and I agree whole heartedly when they chose firewire just because of the extra speed alone.
