Do we really need yet another port on the side of our computers and laptops or portable devices to transfer at the speed of 10 Gbps in either directions ?
We already have USB 3.0 in the waiting list and now we have yet another port.
It all about speed, speed, speed ....
It's a cool technology but it's not something of a need since we have USB 2.0 and Firewire and the upcoming USB 3.0.
People are looking for sleek devices but another port on the sides of our device makes it bulkier to attempt to accomodate for multiple ports.
Thunderbolt is cool but it's not a must. Focus on USB 3.0 first, Intel.
