Apple set to introduce FaceTime HD, ThunderBolt I/O?

Specs for the upcoming MacBook Pro update seem to have been leaked online and among them are FaceTime HD and what just might be Apple's name for the 10Gbps LightPeak port -- ThunderBolt I/O.

Apple used to call MacBook cameras iSight, but since FaceTime launched on iPhone and iPod touch they've taken that name back to the Mac. If the 2011 MacBooks get 720p HD FaceTime cameras is that something we'll see on iOS as well?

Intel's new ultra-high speed, 10Gbps LightPeak connector might just be adopted by Apple soon, and under their own branded name, according to CNET's sources. That's more than 4x faster than USB 2.0's 480Mbps, which is currently supported by iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
