    Apple computer's version of the IEEE 1394 standard, which is a high-speed data exchange protocol. FireWire provides a single plug-and-socket connection on which up to 63 devices can be hung. Additionally, the technology allows for hot-swapping devices, while data transfer allows for speeds of up to 400 Megabits per second. Common on personal computers these days, FireWire is also finding its way into consumer electronics, particularly digital video.
