I really think FireWire is part of the whole Mac experience, and Apple is stupid for removing these from portables. FireWire hasn't even reached it's full potential. Even if Steve knows something about the future of computing that we don't, the move is premature. That's great that we're using Flash media now, but does it have to be SOLDERED to the logic board? A friend recently took his MacBook to the Apple Store because of bad headphone jack and they quoted him $900 to replace the logic board. If Apple is going to force us away from FireWire, AT LEAST give us 3 USB ports. (4 preferred, but 1 is pathetic) I don't like Flash either, but HTML5 isn't perfect. I tried t watch the Mac World Keynote off Apple's website and it wouldn't let me FF, REW or go into full screen. I thought it was pretty funny. I could go on, but there's no point. I'm glad Apple is doing well for themselves. It would be nice if we could be doing well too.
