They didn't want to put it so they could make it slimmer and they've done some studies that USB2 and Firewire and Firewire isn't that much faster than USB2. Also not that many PC's had Firewire connection mostly Macs did so that was another reason they decided to take it out.
Apple has decided to cash in on all the Windows users who don't have firewire.
I'm sure the profit they'll make on this goofy version of iPod will be put toward an even better (firewire enabled) 6th Gen iPod.
