This may just be due to my macbook migration from a dual USB ibook... but anyone notice/find_it_odd that apple flipped the direction of the firewire port by 180°? just when you have something down to second nature... they go and flip it on you... whhy why mess with my head?

I'm still jamming it in the wrong way with my PowerBook... It's been more than half a year :rolleyes:
I think on my last computer the "rounded" edge was pointing down, and on this computer it's facing towards me...

Really... it's ok. Firewire ports point in all different directions on all sorts of machines since 1999.
