The first image shows two Cinema Displays that are both hooked up to a MacBook Pro, indicating that the latest 27″ screens will support Thunderbolt. If you haven’t yet heard of Thunderbolt, it’s a means to transfer data at blazing speeds of 10Gbps.

Verizon Announces 75MB Data Plan For $10/Month

Verizon has announced a new value pack, offering 75MB of data for only $10 a month. Before you go crazy on the price, realize that this deal was meant for basic phones, knowing that 75MB isn’t a whole lot of data. 75MB will allow you to send a few e-mails each day without going over, but won’t let you listen to Pandora (an online radio service).

Not only does the $10 offer you 75MB data, but it also provides monthly subscriptions to Mobile email, VZ Navigator, Verizon Wireless’ audible GPS navigation, and Ringback Tones.

HP Prefers USB 3.0 Over Thunderbolt

We have covered Hewlett-Packard’s many laptops and desktop computers that have recently been released, but have any of you wondered why the new computers didn’t come with Thunderbolt? According to HP, they’ve spent quite a bit of time weighing the pros and cons of high speed transfer options and found USB 3.0 to be better than Thunderbolt. HP claimed that they are still researching the advantages of Thunderbolt but haven’t found any absolute value that the company had to include the new technology on the latest computers.

Verizon’s 4G LTE Is Down Nationwide

Verizon’s 4G LTE network went down late last night, and is still down today. The Verizon 4G LTE outage has occurred through the country and affects the HTC Thunderbolt as well as 4G hotspots. The issue doesn’t affect 3G smartphones on the network, and is limited to 4G capable smartphones. So, if you’ve been holding out on that 4G purchase, yay for you!

Verizon Activates 260,000 HTC Thunderbolts In Two Weeks

Verizon is enjoying hot sales in the company’s many stores, both online and offline. Verizon has activated 260,000 HTC Thunderbolts over the course of two weeks, and 2.2 million iPhones over the course of seven weeks. The Verizon iPhone is flying off the shelves, at a much faster rate than AT&T’s iPhone. Not only do I expect this has to do with the long awaited desire to own an iPhone but also due to Verizon’s significantly better network, at least until AT&T officially integrates with T-Mobile.

AMD Will Support USB 3.0!

Although USB 3.0 can be found on many computers and notebooks today, they are all supported by third party controllers because neither Intel nor AMD currently offer support for USB 3.0 in their chipsets. Thankfully AMD has found it’s niche, even if temporarily, because the company will now offer USB 3.0 support for their chipsets.

AMD will be working on USB3.0 support for the upcoming A75 and A70M Fusion chipsets. Phil Hughes from AMD told CNET that the chipsets are shipping today. We can expect that computers and notebooks with AMD power and USB 3.0 will be hitting shelves by next month at the latest. This of course will give Intel something to sweat about…
