Small connector not small enough, apparently

The compact, easy to use IEEE 1394 connector is clearly not sufficiently compact or easy to use for a band of seven Japanese consumer electronics companies. Sony, Toshiba, Matsushita, Hitachi cable and three others have just proposed a smaller, half-size version of the IEEE 1394 (aka FireWire) connector for home networking products. The exact spec. of the connector the seven want to see will be published in draft form later this month, with the final version due in just under a year's time. That at least should ensure the connector issue doesn't impede the adoption of the connectivity technology, as the controversy over Apple's IP royalty changes (now resolved through a patent ownership consortium) and Intel's advocacy of a faster version of the Universal Serial Bus threatened to do. ® See also Sony adds data protection to 1394 Intel back-tracks on IEEE1394 support
