I was in a well-known consumer electronics store yesterday looking for a standard 4 pin to 6 pin 1394 cable. The cable was out of stock. However, the salesman told me that 1394 was going obsolete and that the cables are only going to be available from Apple Computer by special order in the not to distant future. Can any of you substantiate this claim?
Sounds like nonsense for such an intrenched standard interface.
