You cant really compare them......... They all have their own uses. USB is the most versatile, but IEEE-1394 is the fastest and S-video is used for (you guessed it) video.
What exactly are you trying to compare with them? The only times when you would have a choice is with external hard drives (USB or IEEE-1394), or video/digital cameras (IEEE-1394 or USB, maybe S-video in older video cameras)

firewire is the fastest connection for general data. The USB i use but its not as fast so thats a setback. The S-Video i'm not sure how it relates to the other 2 or the amount of data is tranfers, but i know i use it every once in a while for my TV.

so i vote firewire

I dont see a whole lot of 1394 devices out there,but then again I have no use for it either. True, it is faster than USB, but not every motherboard has one. USB on the otherhand,is everywhere.
