External HD - Fire Wire?

I am planning on purchasing an external hard drive and backing up all of my data, music, etc. on it and keeping it in a safe place.

My question is: my computer has a Fire Wire and also a USB port. I would like to go with the Fire Wire HD but am wondering is the Fire Wire most likely to become obsolete or is it something that will be around for a long time. Thinking about this in case if I buy a laptop in addition to my desk top.

Thanks for any ideas anyone has.

Laptops are more likely to have firewire now than 6 months ago. I wouldn't worry. Firewire should be around for awhile
