Thunderbolt is an interface for connecting peripheral devices to a computer via an expansion bus. Developed by Intel, it was brought to market commercially on Apple’s MacBook Pro lineup on February 24 last year.

The Thunderbolt trademark was first registered by Apple. But full rights belonged to Intel, which eventually led to the transfer of the registration to Intel from Apple.
