I'd love to connect my iPhone 5 via Thunderbolt and have almost instant backups and syncs.

If it's a fake, it's a well made one - and I'm not saying it isn't a fake, but it notable enough and certainly deserves the rumor status required to be on this site.

yeah it does seem like a lot. I really wonder what Apple execs are thinking.

you think they're like "we need to find the source of these leaks! get me on the phone with the head of Foxconn!"

or like "meh, they still don't know everything about it."

Couldn't they use both usb 3 and thunderbolt (since usb can transfer over thunderbolt, although thunderbolt cannot transfer over usb). So essentially two options usb 3 and thunderbolt (for macs). Thunderbolt would be more of an adapter like cable with new iOS Dock Connector on one end and thunderbolt on other.

I know they at one time had USB and Firewire support which ended up being a joke, so I imagine if you want the thunderbolt you'd have to pony up the cash for an extra adapter, but I'm sure they would sell as much thunderbolt to iOS as they would thunderbolt to FireWire 800.

I wonder if it's compatible with micro USB for charging. Looks about the right size, and it would allow them to be compliant with the EU mandate without an adaptor.

... Although I agree with your points, I think it could help thunderbolt adoption. Might be a risk worth taking to help ensure it becomes more of a standard than proprietary apple port. And with it being more of an 'intel' technology than an 'apple' technology, more and more manufactures could hop on board quicker than firewire or ilink.

Doubling up would actually make more sense, since doubling down implies twice the risk.

It looks like this could be a MagSafe style connector.

But the term comes from "doubling down" in Blackjack. It's come to mean either betting more, or investing more on some idea/project/whatever.

Doubling down is still the right term. Even here, doubling down on security is a risk, since you might not get your money's worth out of the extra time/money/effort.

Sure, because if you trip over a charging cable that's charging an iphone, the sheer weight of the iphone will allow the cable to be pulled out before flinging the phone to the floor.
