But Thunderbolt isn't just a video port; it's supposed to replace USB and Firewire as well. Granted it's doubtful Apple will attempt to control simple data transfer anytime soon, but is this a bad sign for the future? Or was it only to be expected from Apple?

Plus, what are your overall thoughts on Thunderbolt?"
