Thunderbolt and AirPlay cost much

Thunderbolt. Awful, truth?

For the last year Apple entered into the devices two quite promising development — the Thunderbolt interface and the wireless AirPlay protocol. Now we mention them together because both of them for more or less real start should get support of postoroniy producers. Let’s tell, Thunderbolt — is the socket for connection of peripherals. From where to undertake to devices if they could not be created? And the companies at what such possibility is, avoid this development because of their nakladnost.

The prices about which we speak, develop of 2 parts: licensing and certain production. If the company longs to add AirPlay support in the musical device made by it, its prime cost to a meeting grows by $(!) 100. Therefore we also do not see big contrast of AirPlay-equipment in the prices lower than $300. Only Philips at all so long since carefully started to "go down" in this price sector.

As much ($100) add also Thunderbolt. For this reason of analytics already now say that Thunderbolt not only cannot make конкурентнсть USB 3.0, well and will not enter at all into a consumer sector. Most likely, support of this inexpressibly fast interface will be provided only in professional audio-and video equipment. Yes, there is Canon which loudly declared Thunderbolt support. But whether it means, what the company actually plans creation of SLR cameras with this interface in the near future? Hardly. Gesture of quite good will towards Intel supposedly you was more quick it introduce, and we will be tightened a bit later. [ilounge]
