Could this be done over Bluetooth or what? Sure would be handy....

How about the option to be either? A lithium ion pack for wireless power, or plug it in if you dont care.

And while there at it... add an auto focus on flesh coloured objects option. That could come in handy.

(hehe... I can see it now... "Hello Apple. My iSight is racest! It only likes white chicks! What's with that?")

Replacing FireWire with Bluetooth is a bit like replacing a fire hose with a drinking straw.

Do you really want your webcam to be a radio, broadcasting its signal?

Exactly. Bluetooth doesn't have anywhere near the bandwidth required to broadcast video. Until someone comes up with Firewireless, we may be out of luck. That said, I don't really see the point either.

Wireless Firewire is real.

Excerpt:

1394 Trade Association Completes New 1394 Wireless Specification; Wireless FireWire Ballot Set for January 2004

Wireless 1394 Adapted for 802.15.3 WPAN Can Link Multiple 1394 Devices in a Network

Dallas, December 8, 2003 The 1394 Trade Associations Wireless Working Group today announced that the specification for Wireless 1394 applications is functionally complete and ready for a ballot as early as January 2004. Formal approval of the new Protocol Adaptation Layer (PAL) standard will move consumers one significant step closer to controlling home networks, HDTVs, and other advanced electronics systems wirelessly, just as they now use remote controls to change TV channels or audio output.

FireWire's dead. Thunderbolt just has to find a good place upstate to bury the body.
