Frank, good point about the FireWire implementations that stalled after FW800. It did surprise me that FW3200 was never a priority of Apple. But I don't know when Apple and Intel began discussing Thunderbolt and perhaps that was a factor in their abandonment of FireWire as the future looked better using Thunderbolt (at least in Apple's perspective). I guess in half a year from now, we shall see if TB is moving ahead or coasting. I do agree the USB3 is everywhere today and is cheaper to implement. But I thought TB would be a superior technology.

And if TB does go optical, it will not be an easy transition for all those devices that used the ability of the copper TB to provide electrical power from the port for their external devices.
