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.

"With smartphones becoming ever more powerful, the moment where you can just plug your smartphone in a dock somewhere and have it connected to a high-resolution display and several input and storage devices is coming ever closer."

I'd like a faster version of Bluetooth to do this - I want to be able to walk into the office, and as soon as I sit down at my desk, my keyboard, mouse and monitor will wirelessly connect to my phone. Oh, need I need to be able to run Windows in a VM on my phone - not much chance of that with Apple's licensing.
