Finally USB 2.0
Authored by: BrunoUsesBBEdit on Jun 25, '03 05:31:21PM

I'm disappointed that they waited till now to add USB 2.0 to their machines. Their are a lot of people that just bought 12" & 15" PowerBooks that should be quite angry.

Sure Firewire is better, but i'd hate to have to tell my PC using friend "Oh, thanks for offering me that free USB 2.0 DVD-Burner that you just replaced, but I don't want it beciase Firewire is better." Or, "Well the reason my Mac is so slow at copying pictures from this USB 2.0 digital camera is because Firewire is better."

Finally USB 2.0
Authored by: SOX on Jun 26, '03 01:21:25PM

supposedly the chips in the older macs support USB 2.0 but the software has not implemented it. I dont know more that what i've ssen on various sites mentioning this without elaboration. the speculation in all cases is that at somepoint they might do a firmware upgrade. not that this helps you right now.
if this is really problem for you that is worth something to you why not buy a firewire->usb converter
