Apple Starts Selling (Then Quietly Pulls) New Thunderbolt-To-Firewire Adapter Through Online Store (Update: It’s Back!)



Early this morning, Apple put up a product page for a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter cable on the online Apple Store. Selling for $29.00, the cable would allow Mac owners to run their old Firewire accessories through Apple’s new Thunderbolt standard.

It appears, however, that Apple wasn’t ready for this product to be announced quite yet, as after the new product broke, the page was quietly pulled for unknown reasons. It also doesn’t show up in store search results.

It’s probably a matter of one of Apple’s web monkeys pushing the “go live” button a few hours prematurely, but we’ll let you know when the Thunderbolt to Firewire cable goes back on sale.

Update: It’s back!

    I think this more or less confirms that Apple is slowly removing firewire from it’s devices.
