Thunderbolt: How it works, and what it means for eSata and USB (itworld.com)
2 points by jfruh 1316 days ago | 1 comment



One big issue that I don't see addressed in this article: the plug. I can plug my memory stick and my USB drive into any computer sold today. Presumably there will be USB 4.0 someday, and it will still be plug-compatible.

But Thunderbolt isn't. Apple doesn't seem to mind changing the plug type for every new computer they produce, but for the rest of us it's a bit annoying.
