Macworld 2008: Apple launches Time Capsule wireless backup system - Tech Digest
Steve Jobs today announced a new hardware and software combo designed to make backing up multiple Macs over a wireless network as painless as possible. The Time Capsule hardware is a revamped 802.11n Wi-Fi base station (Airport Extreme) with a built in server grade hard drive with either 500GB or 1TB capacity. Introduced by Jobs as a much more convenient way of backing up notebook Macs (no-one wants the hassle of connecting cables to an external hard drive, he said) but usable by any OS X Leopard-equipped Macs. Software-wise, it utilises the Time Machine functionality introduced in Leopard.
