    Now what do I do with it?

    Seriously. As much as a surprise TB was to us (me) during the last refresh, I figured at least a few select 3rd parties were privy to it and would get a jump on actually making something that uses it by now.

    Holy crap. MBP's are going to go through another iteration before we see anything.

    The web page for this TB Lacie drive is starting to turn yellow and it won't be available until Summer.

    Has the industry not embraced this technology yet? What else is in the works that you know about?

    Thanks for the link. We need a freaking 12 port device that handles everything. Where is that? :D

    I really, really like the Sonnet stuff. What they are doing would have been impossible without TB. Brilliant.
