Tech-Time : What is Thunderbolt?

What is Tech-Time?

What is Thunderbolt and what can we expect from it in the future?

From Wikipedia: “Thunderbolt (codenamed Light Peak) is a hardware interface that allows for the connection of external peripherals to a computer. It uses the same connector as Mini DisplayPort (MDP)

Thunderbolt was co-developed by Apple and Intel. It was commercially introduced on Apple’s 2011 MacBook Pro, using the same Apple-developed connector as Mini DisplayPort, which is electrically identical to DisplayPort, but uses a smaller, non-locking connector. Though the Thunderbolt trademark was registered by Apple, full rights belong to Intel which subsequently led to the transfer of the registration from Apple to Intel.”
