I've used Macs since 1987. This is a bummer. there's NO REASON they couldn't put a FW400 on the aluminum MacBook. They DID keep it on the white MacBook.

Positive anything is better than negative thinking.

Don't sweat the cameras and all the hardware that's FW400.

Remember http://www.firewirestuff.com/ and click on Adapters.

They have a nice array of hubs, repeaters and integrators into other formats.

So what about all of us that use the FW400 to upload our video from out camcorders?

The most amazing thing is, that after all those years the FW400 has been around, it's still faster than much younger USB 2.0 in pretty much all real life applications and way more versatile. Chaining USB devices, anyone?

Firewire 400 isn't really dead. By using a Firewire 800 port and an adapter, both Firewire configurations are available. My external hard drives have been working this way for some time.

I know, it's from Cooley High. But how many people would get that reference. So it was technically made famous by Boyz II Men. If you can find an appropriate Zappa song from Joe's Garage with a video done on the Ocarina. Well, I'd be glad to post that on the site.

Surely you can't be serious!
