Intel-based Apple iBooks won't feature FireWire

ZDNet heard Apple will drop FireWire support on its new Intel-based iBooks that are coming next month.
Now I'm hearing that FireWire is gone completely from the new Intel iBooks that are coming next month, but its loss should come as a surprise to no one, given Apple's moves of late. A little birdy told me that the new Intel PowerBooks will lose FireWire 400 completely and retain only one FireWire 800 port as a concession to video professionals.
