Arstechnica and iFixIt claim that Apple’s new Tunderbolt cable is actually a "smart" cable that contains circuitry and firmware. iFixIt have already torn down the cable, having found inside two Gennum GN2033 chips in the connector that works as a transceiver to enable “reliable data transfer at cutting-edge speeds over low cost, thin-gauge copper cables.” There were also found additional support chips and resistors, so the total number of chips inside the Thunderbolt connector is 12, of course not including multiply smaller electronic components.
Quite interesting that the current Thunderbolt ports found in iMac and MacBook Pro are planned to be compatible with future Thunderbolt cables, bringing a significant speed improvement. But the current generation of such ports works on the traditional wiring.
Apple has blocked the ability to unlock the iPhone 4 using the Gevey SIM in recently released iOS 5.0 beta 2 firmware. MuscleNerd tweeted:
it's surprising Apple closed Gevey interposer hole in b2 rather than waiting until final (maybe they were under pressure)
Gevey SIM was the only unlock for iPhone 4 users with basebands higher than 01.59. It uses the emergency dialer to force activate the locked baseband. MuscleNerd notes that its unlikely Gevey will try to battle Apple while iOS 5 is in the beta period.
