Petition Apple To Save MacBook FireWire Ports

Oct 18th, 2008 | By | Category: Podcasting Hardware

There’s an online petition asking Apple to save the FireWire port on Mac laptops.

More than 6,000 people have already signed the petition.

Here’s the text of the petition:

To: Apple Inc.

We all love your products, Apple Inc.! But your recently refreshed line of consumer notebooks lacks the possibility to plug in digital audio and video equipment as well as fast mass storage devices. Therefore, we pledge to purchase a new MacBook or MacBook Air if you, the inventor of FireWire technology, would be so kind to bring back FireWire ports to those products.

You can sign the petition here.
