Internet Security Threat Report 2014

WD has announced its new Thunderbolt-bolstered MyBook, telling us that we can soon eyeball the super speeded-up gear at a demo at the Macworld/iWorld show.

The company said: "Thunderbolt technology is capable of producing up to 10Gbps of throughput on each of two channels in both directions.

"Users can experience very fast read/write speeds especially during applications such as video editing, 3D rendering, and other intense graphics projects... HD media creators will be able to transfer a standard size full-length HD movie in less than 30 seconds."

The coming product is the MyBook Thunderbolt Duo, a two-drive external storage system.

Jody Bradshaw, the general manager of WD's consumer storage business seemed excited about the possibility of "daisy-chaining of up to six My Book Thunderbolt Duo systems or other high performance peripherals".
