im also kinda wondering when there will be actual Thunderbolt accessories besides $50 cables and $1000+ hard drive arrays?!

By the time Belkin actually releases its long awaited Thunderbolt breakout box, Apple will have already moved on to the next gen Applebolt standard declaring Thunderbolt a slow and obsolete technology, of course they will gladly sell you a $39 dongle so you can connect at least some of your antique accessories to the new port.

So when are they going to fix the MacPro computers that do not have Thunderbolt?
You know those professional computers who's users are the ones most likely to adopt a technology like Thunderbolt, which was designed to be as fast as possible for professional use!

Bah! I have Thunderbolt Display, famous for USB ports not working correctly from time-to-time. I got all excited and read the headline as "Apple Releases Thunderbolt Display Firmware Update".
