Will Thunderbolt technology be the wave of the future?
Apple Computers unveiled their new MacBook Pro introducing the revolutionary, super fast Thunderbolt technology. This collaboration between Intel and Apple has brought input/output technology to another level. This new port device can transfer about 30 GB (a Blu-ray movie) in less than 30 seconds when typically it would take one minute per GB! Think of all the free time you'll have to work with.
At the moment, this technology is geared more towards professionals but it'll only be a matter of time before it reaches the masses. Several companies have already signed onto Thunderbolt including: Avid (Pro Tools), LaCie and Apogee.
