Excellent article/interviews. However, it ignores a rather salient 
development - the gradual disappearance of Firewire from desktop and 
laptop machines. The last time I shopped I was surprised to see that FW, 
like PCI, is becoming rare hardware, presumably due to improved 
performance from USB3 (?).

Otherwise a fine piece. Thanks for the pointer, Alex !
