NEWS DIGEST: Firewire royalties

Apple Computer is trying to obtain royalties of $1 per port from system makers using the 1394 Firewire interface. The move has drawn protest from several quarters, who believe the price to be excessive. The move by Apple is said to be putting off some companies considering using 1394 for the first time, but companies already committed to using Firewire are standing firm.
