Apple Now Comes With Time Capsule:
Apple introduced Time Capsule — a backup device for automatic and wire-free back-ups for one or more Macintosh. Time Capsule supports all the Macs running on Leopard — Apple’s latest Mac OS, which includes Time Machine — automatic backup software. In terms of functionality, Time Capsule is a plug in device, which unites an 802.11n base station with a server grade hard disk to form a single unit, followed by the installation that automatically backups Macs wirelessly.

Time Capsule offers a full-featured 802.11n Wi-Fi base station and has two models, 500 gigabyte and 1 terabyte. It performs 5 times more and double the range of 802.11g. Apple’s iMac desktops and all Mac notebooks including MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air are built-in with 802.11n. Also it has a built-in power supply and connection to print wirelessly to a USB printer.

Some additional feature includes, dual band antennas for 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequencies, 3 gigabyte LAN ports, 1 gigabyte Ethernet WAN port, 1 USB 2.0 port, Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA/WPA-2), 128 bit WEP encryption, and a built in NAT firewall supporting NAT-PMP for features like ‘Back to My Mac’.

“Bring Time Capsule home, plug it in, click a few buttons on your Macs and voila – all the Macs in your house are being backed up automatically, every hour of every day. With Time Capsule and Time Machine, all your irreplaceable photos, movies and files are automatically protected and incredibly easy to retrieve if they are ever lost,” said Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple.

Along with wire free backup of all data with Time Machine, the user can find lost files and even restore all of the software. In case of file loss, it can be track back to find the deleted files, programs, photos and other digital media. And then restore back the file. The Leopard OS can easily restore an entire system from Time Capsule’s backup via Time Machine.

With Time Capsule, a wire-free and secured network for about 50 users can be created and can imply security checks such as Internet access for children’s computers. It can also serve as a backup solution for multiple computers as well as the backbone for a high-speed – 802.11n wireless network that can be used as an easy and cheap options at home, school or work for file security.

Time Capsule’s 500GB model costs Rs.16, 700 and 1TB model is priced at Rs. 27,200.
