Thunderbolt, FireWire 800 or USB 2.0, Who Wins?

"The folks over at Macworld got one of the new Pegasus R6 RAID systems in for testing and put it through its paces. The testing proved to be a huge win for Thunderbolt, which showed a massive improvement over FireWire 800 and just decimated USB 2.0."

That is a crazy jump in improvement over FireWire 800 and USB 2.0 doesn't even come close. You can see the full results at Macworld but from the chart above, there doesn't seem to be any question that Thunderbolt is the clear winner.

Apple Updates Mac Pro and Epson Printer Drivers

"If you work with FireWire audio devices on a Mac Pro that you purchased after March 2009, Apple placed a little gift in Software Update for you."

That gift is in the form of Mac Pro Audio Update 1.1 for Mac Pros running Mac OS 10.6.3, which is the fix for some sort of "audio anomaly" that customers reported hearing when they were using FireWire audio devices. And this wasn't the only update from Apple, as they also released one for Epson printer drivers version 2.3.1 for Mac OS X 10.6.
