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.

I think there's a problem with your analogy that you're not seeing though. Firewire was just Firewire, where as Thunderbolt is Thunderbolt + USB + Firewire + whatever else. So the technology wars aren't comparable

Plus you're ignoring the most important aspect of this: 15 years ago, Apple was in dire trouble. Today, Apple is the wunderkind of tech companies and whatever they do, everyone else wants to do too
