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.

There's nothing in that webpage from Intel (or in Apple's laptop announcement) indicating that HTC has been granted permission to use the "Thunderbolt" name, or the other way around. So like I said, there's this smell of lawsuit around.


Unlikely - HTC use the name for a model of phone, Intel use the name for a device controller. Trademarks apply only to the niche the name is used in, so there's not much grounds for claiming a conflict...
