In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.

I have really liked Griffen stuff...

The trouble for me is all the damn audio specs and whatnot made me basically ignore it all as long as my stuff sounded OK. It has been overload. Surround? I thought digital audio out solved that already! But then again, I'm not reading or really checking.

I suppose this has everything to do with Firewire (at least 400) going the way of the dodo. Maybe Apple will have the new USB 3 premiere...

I think Apple's going to Firewire-over-ethernet. We'll see.

So how does that work? (Firewire over ethernet)

From wikipedia:

FireWire S800T (IEEE 1394c-2006)
FireWire is enhanced to share gigabit Category 5e cable

IEEE 1394c-2006 was published on June 8, 2007.

It provides the following improvements

* A new port specification which provides 800 Mbit/s over the same RJ45 connectors with Category 5e cable which is specified in IEEE 802.3 clause 40 (gigabit Ethernet over copper twisted pair)
* An automatic negotiation that allows the same port to connect to either IEEE Std 1394 or IEEE 802.3 (Ethernet) devices.
* Various minor updates to IEEE 1394b

Though the potential for a combined Ethernet and FireWire RJ45 port is intriguing, as of December 2007, there are no products or chipsets which include this capability.

DPBD:

It does require hardware that supports it, so it would not be backward compatible without an adapter for older devices. I thought it might be how Apple would get around the ostensible lack of firewire on the Mac Books. Not this time, apparently.

Well, I've spent all day (literally) trying to upload 400 photos. So far, only 49 have made it. They keep erroring out. But I have no idea WHY. Some java app. Probably works best in Winders. Perhaps I should try Firefox? But, I'm tired and going to bed. Only 350 more photos to upload to fill up a 100 page book.

Picked up a 1st gen iPod Touch yesterday for €149 for my mum and myself. Funny thing, if you stop buying the latest stuff for a year, you pay half price for everything that's new to you.
