IT-Enquirer publishes in-depth editorial covering IEEE 1394b.

LONDON, ANTWERP, AMSTERDAM - May 30, 2001 - IEEE 1394 is one of the most compelling technologies available today. After Microsoft's announcement it would definitely support the IEEE 1394 serial bus technology on Windows XP, the future of this technology seems guaranteed.

The new standard, IEEE 1394b has major advantages over USB 2.0 and over its predecessor. IT-Enquirer has an extensive editorial on this new technology available for further editing or just for reading. There will be a series of articles covering IEEE 1394b. Those that are already on-line are an in-depth overview of the technology itself and a complete overview of quotes and comments by the Giga Information Group.

The series will be completed with a review of two new hard drive disks using the current 'FireWire' specification with an updated Oxford bridging chip, and with comments and quotes from other analysts.

This series of articles will especially appeal to organisations and end-users who want to know about the potential of this new standard, how it works and why it is slowly overtaking other serial technologies such as SCSI and even USB. The articles will also appeal to journalists who want to obtain a well-documented starting point to rapidly write their own editorials on the subject.

As usual, these articles are entirely free of copyright and can be obtained following an on-line form-based request for either an ASCII or a PDF version.

IT-Enquirer is updated almost daily. Editorial can be read on-line and people who are interested in reading off-line or editing the original texts can request to have the article sent to them for free. Those who register will be able to join technical and marketing oriented forums, and conduct interviews with specialists in the field. For further information visit

About IT-Enquirer and its publisher, Erik Vlietinck, Ll.D.

Erik Vlietinck is a Belgian and a dr. of Law, currently dividing his time between Belgium, Holland and the UK. He has been writing about information technology as a freelance for over 6 years now. He has built an expertise in a limited number of technologies, which he covers on IT-Enquirer and KM-Informer.

IT-Enquirer is Erik's attempt to help others in his line of business get their work done more efficiently and within shorter time periods. Background articles and technical briefs often require much research which--even with the Internet as a help--take a lot of time and effort. Erik hopes his initiative will help his colleagues take off more rapidly, resulting in faster turnaround. He believes he can especially help his freelance colleagues with this service.

Both IT-Enquirer and KM-Informer are also valuable knowledge bases for IT-managers and -directors who wish to assimilate information on technology in an easily digested form.
