FireWire Cables No Longer Included With New iPods

Larry Angell reports for iPodlounge:

The new iPod photo models no longer include iPod photo Docks, iPod photo AV cables, or cases, and more surprisingly, Apple has also apparently dropped both FireWire cables and FireWire Power Adapters from the iPod photo boxes. Each iPod photo now includes only a single USB 2.0 cable and a USB Power Adapter, recently reviewed on iPodlounge, for wall power charging. Each of the other items is available separately.

Wow, this sucks — USB 2.0 is definitely slower than FireWire. (The same goes for the updated iPod Minis, too.)
