OT: new macbooks, no firewire

The macbook pro has an expresscard port, a firewire 800 port,  two 
USB ports and some kind of mini-dvi connector.

I hate the expresscard fomat. It seems to be made for viewing photo 
memory cards or something -- the mechanical design is very stupid. 
When one pushes the card in,  it doesn't latch, and can be pulled out 
quite easily with an accidental tug of a cable.   My high tech 
solution was to wrap one layer of drafting tape around the outside, 
to "jam" the card in place. They guys at the apple store confirmed it 
is ALL expresscard devices are like this.
