Default USB 2.0 & Firewire Go Bye Bye?

I heard it from a sales person fiddling with there USB turn-tables at guitar center. It was this plastic device about a few inches long with all sorts of nobs and buttons.

I inquired about a firewire version of the same board, "oh, no, firewire is going out of style" etc etc. Where have I been?

Spam???

No Firewire and USB 2.0 wont be going away.... USB 3.0 is coming out which will allow older 2.0 devices and there is no reason to kill firewire, a lot of HD cameras use it...

I thought that was the MAIN reason for firewire. I think the sales person misunderstood what I was referring to in terms of wires. Firewire does a full DV tape to HDD (around 60 mins of video) at 30 minutes doesn't it?

This is completely false. Two different standards, both are widely used, and they're not going anywhere.

Key part-

Guitar Center Salesperson.

Maybe the companies who make turn tables are using USB more.
