When Intel announced thunderbolt and Apple backed it, I hoped that Apple would release it's own range of products, like PCIe docks, thumb drives, large multi drive HDD enclosures, 4k displays, external 10GigE network cards etc. All they ended up doing instead is releasing a bunch of thunderbolt to XYZ cables. With the immanent release of the nMP I can't help but feel that Apple has painted itself into a corner. The only connectivity an expansion the nMBP has is thunderbolt, but there is nothing to expand it with because Apple hasn't backed the technology and there are only a few niche products. I was hoping and I think Apple was hoping third party companies would step in with a wide range of solutions, but this doesn't seem to be happening. In fact there are tons of thunderbolt products that were paraded around last year's trade shows that I would like to have, but the majority of proposed thunderbolt products seem to have been canceled likely because the manufacturers saw that nobody cared. It seems like Thunderbolt isn't gaining adoption without Apple backing it with peripherals. Does anyone else feel this way?
