I've searched high and low, google and altavista, the apple store and asking the computer teacher at school. Is it possible to hook a firewire cable up from a poweroutlet (like.. from iPod charger w/ firewire outlet to cable to powerbook or iBook)? I remember when my iBook adapter gave out on me I thought about doing this, but got the Kensington Air/Wall/Plane thing for $45 from one of my apple clerks. (open box, AWW YEA!) But, if it were to ever happen in the future, would it be possible to charge my powerbook or iBook over firewire? Would it make hardware explode or catch fire or hundreds of other horrible situations? I'm not willing to test this on my own, but I'm curious about it... Does it work? BTW, I'm talking 12" G3 iBook 900MHz and a 15" G4 Powerbook 1.5GHz.
