PCIe FireWire/USB adapter

Accessory maker Sonnet Technologies has released a new PCI Express adapter, the Tango Express 800. The card allows Mac and PC owners to connect several FireWire and USB devices to their computer at once, and specifically plays host to three FireWire 800 and three USB 2.0 ports, the latter being divided into one internal and two external connections. Several devices can be active simultaneously, and each one is hot-swappable. Mac users have the additional ability to use FireWire's target disk mode. Macs supported by the Express include the Mac Pro, Xserve, and dual-core PowerMac G5, running Mac OS X 1.4.10; PCs must be running Windows Vista or XP SP2. The adapter is selling for $130.
