This video says goodbye to Firewire 400

Yes it's silly but it will remind you about a lot of stuff

I remember big, boxy Firewire 400 drive from some unknown company so many years ago that I can't even remember when it was. When I showed it to my SCSI-loving editor/engineer he thought it was nuts and I wouldn't use it for more than one job. Well we see where SCSI went. And I ended up with a lot of Firewire 400 drives after that. And I still have a lot of them. With the new Apple updates this week Firewire 400 is going. It's 800 only now. TUAW has a post with this video embeded and it really reminded me just how many Firewire 400 drives, interfaces and appliances there are out there with Firewire 400. So get your 400 to 800 adapter and keep on working!
