Apple applies for Thunderbolt trademark

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2011

Thunderbolt is the new communication standard developed by Apple and Intel. You might remember that it was unveiled a few weeks ago with the new MacBook Pro computers. It was thought that Intel was mainly responsible for its development, with Apple playing a small role. However, Apple’s latest move seems to suggest that it played a larger role.

Apple has filed to trademark the name Thunderbolt, branding the high-speed data transfer as something they own, not something they share with Intel. So is Apple just trying to slide in and claim it or is there more to this?

Verizon has reportedly had to delay the Thunderbolt’s official launch date six times, which explains the multiple release dates that have surfaced. Hopefully they get things sorted out quickly and get the phone out.
