If you found yourself scratching your head at the announcement of an ExpressCard/34 slot in the new MacBook Pro, you're probably not alone. Built by the PCMCIA association to take slot dwelling expansion cards into the next generation, the ExpressCard is smaller and faster than a PC Card, and can support PCI Express -- all good things, but it leaves EV-DO card users and others out in the cold for now. At least Y-E DATA of Japan has their act together, since they've announced a 5-in-1 card reader for the new platform. Good for them, but let's hope we see some other cards on the market real quick like, or Apple could be losing a bunch of those mobile professionals who have been holding out for Intel books for a while already.
