not sure, but thats the rumor. their new macbooks do not have firewire. The Macbook Pro's do.

hmmmm i find it hard to believe. they will phase out the 400 connection in favour of the 800.....and maybe the 1600 & 3200 to come. see this article: http://en.wikipedia.or​g/wiki/Firewire_800 (external link)

I didn't read the whole thing but were you referring to the expected release of 1600 +?
The new macbooks are out and they have no firewire, only USB 2.0. If you want it you have to get the higher end Macbook Pro.
Considering that Mac developed the Firewire this is very confusing move. I agree, it is hard to believe.
google mac phasing out firewire and you will see many rumors.

Yeh it would be weird, mainly because of the speeds that can be achieved with firewire vs usb 2. Maybe they will just keep it for the high end computers

I'll be upgrading to 1 Terrabyte HD's soon enough.

Got to say I'm kind of disappointed you haven't already. :)

With DVDs I write the date they were burn't on them, and figure on replacing them every 2 years. With the cost of DVDs that's really no big deal.

Of course next replacement will probably be onto BR discs, and then 4 years from now it'll be onto little holographic crystals that hold a hojilabyte of data and we'll all be laughing at that crappy old 5DMk2 while we float around on our anti-gravity furniture.

Did you see the Fry's ad this week?
They have a 1.5 Terrabyte HD for $119.00
Place that in an external case for another $20 and you have a great big external drive for under $140.

I currently have two 500 Gig HD's in my PC, one external 500 Gig Hd and one 320 Gig External HD.

So now, why are you dissapointed in my choices?  :p
Because I didn't get a larger drive when I didn't need one yet? :lol:

Edit: If I wait long enough, I can just switch over to the crystal storage you spoke of. :lol:

Actually, this thread got into data storage around post #6. :) Not even close to page two.
It evolved from there as to how long someone expected to be able to hold on to their data, in order to reprint photos for a customer later on down the road.
Imagine if your client had a house fire (heaven forbid) and lost everything.
Twenty years down the road, could they come to you for a reprint of their wedding album? That's how we got to storage. ;)

As for the printer question, perhaps one of the other good folks on here can better answer that one.

i dont think it matters 20 years down the line what you choose today... :) I have a note in my Ical every 18 month to buy a new HD. at this stage I have thrown out 2 perfectly good lacie porsche drives and replaced them with 2 new " 1 TB Big Disk"- did it this summer. so im good until end of 2009 then ill buy 2 new one even if they have not filled up by then. I have done this ever since one of my disks broke after 12-14 month of usage. lost a years work more or less... luckily a lot of clients had on cd/mail etc...
