Incorporating Thunderbolt I/O technology by Intel (which, at 300 MB/sec of sustained throughput, is twice as fast as USB 3.0 and 12 times faster than FireWire 800), as well as two new 4-TB, 7,200 RPM Hitachi Deskstar hard drives, the new G-RAID with Thunderbolt sets a new capacity and performance standard for RAID storage, Hitachi claims. For example, the G-RAID with Thunderbolt can transfer a full-length, high-definition movie in less than a minute, Hitachi says.

Aimed at the professional A/V market, the G-RAID with Thunderbolt's speed and capacity could potentially turn any notebook or desktop into a full-fledged video editing workstation. The G-RAID's two Thunderbolt ports enable daisy-chaining of up to six Thunderbolt peripherals (ie: additional G-RAIDs, a high-resolution display, or high-bit-rate video capture devices). Thunderbolt ports can be found on new models of notebooks and desktops from vendors like Apple.

Agreed on both counts...the NEX line is definitely not SLR, that's how the body can be made so small, no mirror/pentaprism

I don't think DSLR is the correct term for this type of camera. It's a Compact System Camera, or a Mirrorless camera, or a compact interchangeable lens camera, but not a DSLR. I could be wrong but I think DSLR's are designed around the mirror which makes it a single lens reflex.
And I believe the hold up is the floods in Thailand, not the Tsunami in Japan. Seems like the reporting is not quite up to snuff here.
