Intel’s Initial Light Peak Uses Copper Instead?

Light Peak, Intel’s light-based connector technology, is rumored to use copper instead, according to a recent post at CNet.

Light Peak is capable of carrying data at 10 gigabits per second in both directions simutaneously. It works with monitors, external drives, scanners, printers and anything else that plugs into a computer.

Fortunately, connection speeds will not be affected by the transition to copper, according to sources.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
