Submission + - Thunderbolt (in new Macbook Pro) to enforce DRM (washingtonpost.com)

bo1024 writes: "This article mentions that Apple's new connection technology, Thunderbolt, will support the same HDCP limitations that its video outs have had in the past.

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?"
