CNet reports that Intel is launching Light Peak on Thursday, February 24th,

Intel released a statement to the media today stating that on Thursday in San Francisco it will "host briefing to discuss a new technology that is about to appear on the market."

The date happens to coincide with Apple's expected release of new MacBook Pros.

We don't expect this to be a coincidence and perhaps explains why Apple choose to launch the new MacBook Pros on a Thursday rather than Tuesday.
