Perhaps Intel and the other PC OEM's will simply use Light Peak going forward now that Apple is known to be filing for the trademark. Nothing wrong with that. The question to me is, why did Intel roll it out initially as Thunderbolt? Did they not know that Apple applied for this trademark? Did Apple just sucker punch Intel?

Let the light shine. I think this is some kind of political play.

Apple needed a cheap way to get Thunderbolt to market and Intel needed something to get excited about. While Intel played a role here, I'm not quite convinced this isn't Apple's technology.

Way to go Apple! Maybe Apple doesn't want to be put in the closet concerning their role in Thunderbolt. Maybe it's the other way around and Intel is the minor player here. That's what it sounds like to me.
