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.

Really? Then why did Apple license the IOS trademark from Cisco?

IOS and iOS are both Operating Systems, albeit in different OS market segments. That is likely enough of a similarity that Cisco would win a trademark suite by a landslide, considering its use of IOS was much earlier than Apple's.

Thunderbolt is a phone and a computer interface, those are probably a bit more segmented to trademark law than operating systems designed for different purposes.
