I'm picking Apple will hold off implementing USB2 in hardware until it has FireWire2 available on its Macs and iPods. So they better get moving with FW2 because the rest of the computer world is starting to implement USB2 about now.<br><br>It'll be a downer for Mac people if we can't use the newer higher performance peripherals while our PeeSee cousins can. Of course, there'll be add-in PCI cards available for the Mac I guess, if you really need a new USB2 printer or whatever. But since all the other USB1.1 stuff will be upgraded to USB2, Apple really needs to get in line with the way the rest of the world is going.<br><br>IMHO, naturally. <br><br>
yeah, I can't really help you either... I just barely have time to visit macminute, much less Meader's site...<br><br>please someone start giving us rumor mill wrap ups, if you can <br><br><br><br>simplex veri sigillum<br>

Nothing recently on the rumors sites about USB2, only Gigawire Aka. Firewire2 (or so they recon) which suposedly is going to be in the new rackmounted servers so probably the next G4 tower revision. <br><br>This may just be me being in europe but i don't see the point in USB2 as there is already more firewire stuff out there and firewire is nearly as fast (80 Mbs I.e. 10 MB per second difference) and firewire2 is much faster as it is twice as fast as current firewire.<br><br>“Here can be found the last words of Joseph of Arimathea.
