Thunderbolt or USB 3.0--Which is the Better Option?

Cables connected into the back of an iMac
This year at CES, we heard quite a bit about products coming out using USB 3.0 and/or Thunderbolt. Hard drives, card readers, monitors, even laptop docking stations.

Many devices come in one flavor or the other, but for some, you have a choice.

I am a new user of the Canon XF300, and I have some questions regarding storage and editing of the MXF files. When I store on blu-rays, I loose the link to the XF Utility software, is it possible to re-link later, or is it better to not use Utility at all?

Our company Dempsey Film Group has closed it's doors and we've been selling all kinds of stuff. Most of it is sold but we still have a SNAS storage system that is still available for sale. It's a 96 TB system that's all Mac based. This was used as a shared network attached storage and worked awesome for our 6 edit suites and graphic workers... It is my understanding that you can use this as a SAS unit as well or I am willing to part it out for the right prices and If I get a lot of response.
