First off, a refresher; A few days ago rumors spilled out stating that Intel's new Light Peak technology was being built at the behest of Apple. Light Peak is a next generation I/O port capable of 10 GB/s transfer speeds going in either direction. The rumors stated that the technology was initially conceived by Apple, who asked Intel to finish building it for them.

Today, however, CNET has news that contradicts this. Industry sources have informed them that Light Peak was an original Intel labs product. The rumors appear to originate from the fact that Intel showed their new tech off to several third parties in order to get feedback. Someone outside of the loop probably heard about Apple giving Intel some advice, and assumed the whole project was their idea. Photo credit: Intel
