ok, my gizmo arrived today (yay, even though at 2am it had barely been scanned in in Shanghai, weird). It is currently doing its update thing (which is taking a while), but I have a few questions. Right now I have it hooked up via Fire Wire to my G4. Does that firewire charge it as well as data or does only USB 2.0 charge it while data linked? Also, which is faster, USB 2.0 or FireWire? This update thing has taken damn near 30 mins so far. Now i just have to figure out how to keep from being completely OCD about keeping the back polished. I should have bought a cover, but I dont know what to get... 3. Which cover should I get? I just want general protection. Nothing leather or hard plastic, I'd prefer something form fitting. Suggestions and experience please. Thanks!
