Apparently the Guru is here to make us all Disciples of 1394 Please qualify your original statement. I fail to see how you proved Intel is stupid... and for that matter I don't think you offered a convincing argument that USB sucks. Are you saying it sucks because its slower than 1394? How does that follow? Does this mean anything that's not the fastest sucks? Using a similar argument, I could state that 1394 sucks because eSATA is faster. You must see the foolishness in this logic. Do I think 1394 is superior to USB? Yes. Would it be great if it had overtaken the personal electronics & peripherals market instead of USB? Yes. Does that make Intel or USB stupid? Certainly not. Save the bashing/flaming for a different forum please.
