I don't really see a need for this since most computers now a days have both USB 2.0 and firewire.

don't know if anything was ever, or will ever, be made like that. for one, they're 2 completely different standards. also, wasn't FireWire originally a Mac only standard?

IEEE 1394

A very fast external bus standard that supports data transfer rates of up to 400Mbps (in 1394a) and 800Mbps (in 1394b). Products supporting the 1394 standard go under different names, depending on the company. Apple, which originally developed the technology, uses the trademarked name FireWire. Other companies use other names, such as i.link and Lynx, to describe their 1394 products.

A single 1394 port can be used to connect up 63 external devices. In addition to its high speed, 1394 also supports isochronous data -- delivering data at a guaranteed rate. This makes it ideal for devices that need to transfer high levels of data in real-time, such as video devices.

Apple made it, but it's not exclusive.
