Apple We already talked about iOS 7 yesterday (after a night of sleep, it's only looking worse and worse - look at this, for Fiona's sake!), so now it's time to talk about the downright stunning and belly flutters-inducing new Mac Pro. As former owner and huge, huge, huge fan of the PowerMac G4 Cube - I haven't been this excited about an Apple product since, well, I would say the iMac G4. This is the Apple I used to love.

I like it. I own a macbook pro , you know how many thunderbolt devices I own 0! I really would like a cheapy enclosure for my sata drives, I do realize the cable is expensive but hell just an enclosure is expensive. I know this is intel technology, i would suspect once windows land gets thunderbolt the devices will start to flood I havent seen any windows computers with thunderbolt

on the pc you have no need for thunderbolt
even on laptops you have access to pci-e through dockingstations or expresscards
thunderbolt is a solution in search of a problem

says the person that's never swapped a fast external firewire drive from a daisy chain without more than a mouseclick from the host OS.

some of us like simple plugs that auto-configure and chain over medium distances.

plus drives in production studios need to be fast and portable, hence firewire being critical for production rigs, but nearly useless in a general office or programming environment. i can't have cards dangling just to get basic drive connection.
