filmscanners: OT/News: FireWire poised to become ubiquitous

FireWire poised to become ubiquitous

While Apple Computer was happy to take home an Emmy for its FireWire 
technology, the company must be even more pleased that the high-speed 
connection is moving closer to a bigger goal-- becoming standard on the 
majority of PCs.
. . .
The origins of FireWire can be traced to the 1990s when Apple was seeking a 
way to replace the aging SCSI port that had been a part of the Macintosh 
since its early days.

"We needed to surpass what SCSI was capable of doing in a more easy-to-use 
way," Bogar said. In addition to being slow, SCSI peripherals required the 
first and last device in the chain to have terminators and also had awkward 
switch settings that had to be manually set by the computer owner.

The function of art is to reveal this radiance through the created object."
