VAIO Hybrid PC Featuring Sony’s Thunderbolt Port?

Have a peek at the image below and tell me what you see. Does that look like a Thunderbolt port to you? According to a "trusted source" speaking with Engadget it is. What's important here, perhaps even more important than the idea that this actually is a port that supports Sony's upcoming Thunderbolt interpretation is that this could mean that Sony is indeed sold on the idea of Thunderbolt and instead of going with Apple's Mini DisplayPort implementation, they've chosen a USB port.

Apple’s Big Success: Devaluing Everything

Apple’s Big Success: Devaluing Everything

It was while writing SlashGear's Nintendo 3DS review that it really struck me, the disparity between "traditional" software - whether that's for your desktop or a game for your console - and the new "app" ecosystem is Apple's biggest accomplishment. Where once computer software was a $40+ boxed product - and where 3DS games, and those for other consoles, are still $40+ boxed cartridges - it's now a $0.99 download, instant gratification at a cost that won't wrinkle your conscience. Tech is cheap, apps are throwaway, and Apple is to blame.

How fast is it? Why it's 12 times faster than FireWire 800 they say, 20 times faster than USB 2.0, quicker than a speeding bullet!

MacBook Pro 15-inch with ThunderBolt hands-on (early 2011)

Make no mistake; the new MacBook Pro notebooks are impressive beasts. Outwardly all but identical to the previous range, which means plenty of milled aluminum, a backlit chiclet keyboard and broad multitouch trackpad, on the inside there's a fresh injection of Sandy Bridge and potent AMD processors to match.

iPad 2 Thunderbolt rumors reignite: More than just raw throughput

iPad 2 Thunderbolt rumors reignite: More than just raw throughput

Apple's confirmation of Thunderbolt on the newly refreshed MacBook Pro range this morning could lend weight to speculation earlier that the new iPad 2 will have a Light Peak connection of its own. Examination of the various batches of leaked iPad 2 cases had led to suggestions that the mysterious opening on the top edge could be for a smaller-than-USB connector; that would certainly fit in with the Mini DisplayPort connection Thunderbolt has been confirmed to use.
