New Apple Portables To Drop FireWire Support?

Jason O'Grady of PowerPage.org claims that FireWire (IEEE 1394) will be completely missing from the rumored Intel iBooks.

He also claims that the new Intel PowerBooks will lose FireWire 400 ports, and only retain a single FireWire 800 port to appease video professionals.
Apple recently dropped Firewire support from the latest iPod (5G).
