You're right - you were wrong. Now if you said that new IEEE-1394 (firewire) implementations are getting less and less, that would be correct.
1394 was used on many camcorders, the first HD products (such as DVHS), many cable boxes, digital still cameras, hard drive interfaces, controls for professional audio work and a number of unique interfaces including on the now-retired Space Shuttle.
So, 1394 is still around (I use it almost daily) but the tendancy has been to migrate away from 1394, which is a shame that was mostly driven by the cost of implementation.
