Thunderbolt – The world’s most sophisticated cable?

The geometry of Nordost Odin. The circuit-in-a-cable approach of MIT. The static charge on Synergistic shielding. All examples of how audio cables have progressed beyond the twisted pair.

But these are childlike in sophistication compared to the Thunderbolt cable, as featured in new Apple Macintosh products.

T-bolt, which some suspect to be the ‘next big thing’ in computer-audio connectivity, houses a dozen I/C’s in each cable!

Check out the details in this iFixit blog piece.

Fascinating stuff (for a geek).
