From MacNN this morning:
Apple to announce 800Mbps FireWire?
ITworld.com reports on a "premature news release" this morning by SmartDisk on new desktop hard drives that connect to Macs using the new high-speed 800Mbps FireWire standard: "The aborted news suggests that Apple may announce FireWire2, or FireWire 800, in his keynote speech at Macworld Expo Tuesday. FireWire2 is the next generation of the Apple-invented standard. It supports data transfer at 800Mbps and is backwards-compatible with computers and peripherals that support FireWire 1."

Well it's here now in the 17" Powerbook, so I guess it won't be long before it's in the PowerMacs. We'll probably see new PowerMacs by the end of February with Firewire 2.
