Firewire: one more try
3D Sound Surge has republished a press release
from the Evil Empire and Sony about making Windows provide decent support for IEEE 1394, or FireWire, connectivity:
``Microsoft and Sony share the vision of a simple and reliable connection between Windows-based PCs and digital AV products, enabling our mutual customers to easily do things like create, edit and store photos,'' said Carl Stork, general manager of Hardware Strategy and Evangelism at Microsoft. ``It has been great to work so closely with Sony to ensure customers have a positive experience.''
Given that Sony's very sweet digital video cams have IEEE 1934 ports, 'twould be nice to see this work out. Digital video capture/transfer could be relatively cheap and very fast. This link courtesy of TR newshound Maizel.
