Intel Apple has just updated its line of MacBook Pros. Usually, this isn't anything to get particularly excited about, but this time around, they've got a genuine treat: Thunderbolt. Apple is the first to use this new connection technology, developed at Intel and believed to be the copper version of Lightpeak. It's pretty impressive.

It's a marketing ploy, and it works. This ensures even more coverage. This is how it works for normal companies:

"Dildo Inc. Refreshes Dildo Pro Line, Adds Accelerometer"

And that's it. This item then gets updated with a first hands-on. So, one item.

Now, this is how it works for special companies (of which there is only one):

13:01 "ZOMG DILDO STORE OFFLINE ZOMG ZOMG!!11!1!ONE!!"
13:02 "DILDO STORE OFFLINE BECAUSE OF REFRESHED DILDO PROS?"
13:15 "DILDO INC. REFRESHES DILDO PRO LINE"
13:15 "REFRESHED DILDO PRO LINE ADDS ACCELEROMETER"
13:16 "DILDO PRO ACCELEROMETER: HOW IT WORKS"
13:25 "FIRST PHOTOS: DILDO PRO 13"
13:26 "FIRST PHOTOS: DILDO PRO 15"
13:27 "FIRST PHOTOS: DILDO PRO 17"
13:31 "FIRST HANDS-ON: DILDO PRO 13"
13:32 "FIRST HANDS-ON: DILDO PRO 15"
13:33 "FIRST HANDS-ON: DILDO PRO 17"
13:54 "FIRST VIDEO HANDS-ON: DILDO PRO 13"
13:56 "FIRST VIDEO HANDS-ON: DILDO PRO 15"
13:57 "FIRST VIDEO HANDS-ON: DILDO PRO 17"

15:01 "REFRESHED DILDO PRO: GAMECHANGER"

It's quite brilliant.
