=O ill wait for usb 3.0, if they get extra time they might get it to go even faster

Would a 10x faster USB be faster than firewire and if so where does that leave firewire in the future?

Firewire actually isn't THAT much faster than USB at the moment if you are comparing USB 2.0 and Firewire400. Not a LOT implements Firewire800 but it chugs along pretty quickly. Either way eSATA is the way to go for raw speed :)
One huge difference between USB and firewire is that USB is host-based (needs a computer as a middle man) whereas firewire is P2P meaning that 2 devices can be directly connected and inviably transfer -- this in part increases the efficiency of firewire in many cases due to much lower latencies.
Bottom line: its a little like apples and oranges here and totally depends on the situation. if you have an EXT HDD and hooked it up via USB and transferred 1GB worth of stuff and then hooked it up via firewire and transferred the same 1GB of stuff, you would probably save yourself about 2 minutes or so...
