I thought that doing the conversion to optical and back would suck too much power from the port. Guess that ain't true.

Thunderbolt is a closed standard designed with DRM in mind. Just like HDMI, it will restrict manufactures from making video capture cards. Thunderbolt simply won't license the technology. Support open standards like USB 3.0 which is fully capable of doing 1080p. Surely USB 4.0 or whatever it will be called will be able to handle 4K.

I bet some guy who installs home theater is already trying to figure out how to use this to power 4K TV's throughout some rich guy's McMansion.

Most rich guys aren't stupid. They know they won't notice any benefit from the increased resolution at the distances they are comfortable watching from. For the most part 4K TVs only go to the pseudo rich and upper middle class. Drug dealers are more likely to get a 4K TV than a rich person.

Strange comment! Anyone can apply to be a Thunderbolt technology developer: thunderbolttechnology DOT net SLASH contact SLASH thunderbolt-developer

"Open" compared to what? Developing USB technology requires a vendor ID issued by the USB-IF.
