It's a proper Thunderbolt port as it has the "Lightning" symbol beside it rather than the "TV like" symbol for Mini Display port. I also bought my Macbook Pro when they started putting Thunderbolt...

Still on Snow Leopard. I tried the update that you suggested - it came up with "Your computer does not need this". I'm guessing that as it's from 2011, my Macbook already has it. I have kept Snow...

Yeah, done this - and sadly still nothing. Do you think that my adapter is broken, as it still isn't detected as a Thunderbolt device? Thank you for the reply by the way.

I saw it ages ago on BBC1, sometime in the early 1990s. It's an unusual film - black and white photography, and a different theme for David Lynch. Superb performance from John Hurt under that...

Robert De Niro - that's a joke - he really needs to get some decent roles again - only Silver Linings Playbook was any good recently.

I'd put in another vote for Leo. He was very good in Gangs of...

I saw it about a year ago. It's a B movie. It's okay, and has a very good cast. I accept that it is a bit insubstantial - even for a B movie, but it does have some nice touches from Soderbergh. ...
