You might have heard of Intel’s Light Peak technology, a new high-speed
optical cable technology designed to connect your electronic devices to
each other.

A quick look at Light Peak

Light Peak also has the ability to run multiple protocols simultaneously
over a single cable, starting at 10Gb/s with the potential ability to scale to 100Gb/s over the next decade, according to Intel.

Light Peak will have a controller chip and an optical module that
would be included in platforms supporting this technology. The optical
module will be performing the conversion from electricity to light and vice versa.

What about Apple ?
According to source, Apple will introduce the new standard for its systems around Fall 2010, introducing Light Peak to all its products (from an iPhone to a Mac). In short, Apple products could come equipped with only a Light Peak port (or just ports?) to
handle your networking, display driving, and general connectivity.

There are plans to roll out a low-power variation in 2011, suggesting that handhelds like iPod/iPhone will have the capability to perform high data transfers and a broad connectivity to other devices.

Are you supporting this all-in-one single port solution or are you against it ? We would love to  hear your opinions
