Personally, I think wireless networks might eventually eliminate the need for Firewire, but it's not as if I'm enough of an
expert on the subject to properly defend that position.

Here are some experts on the field, though I haven't been able to find the links, yet:

Wireless transmitters create low-frequency magnetic fields. When cancer rates begin to increase at a rate sympathetic to the rate of increase in wireless transmission, people will begin to wonder if all of their products really NEED to be transmitters.
