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.

And keep mind this is Intel, biggest and worst monopoly in HW industry. They are under investigation by USA, EU and Korea. This is company that can deliver failed hardware and yet make strongest sales figure. Company that can overprice it products and yet sell more than competitors. Didn't AMD needed to call EU officials before whole USB3 fiasco was avoided? Intel is kind a like IBM was back in days, bullying smaller guys by making property HW that it doesn't license, shady supplier deals and creating so called standards without allowing others to use them fairly or say anything.
