The first was “Time Capsule”, a new wireless backup device designed to work with Leopard’s Time Machine backup software. Jobs commented that “For notebooks, it [Time Machine] doesn’t work so well”, due to the need to keep it plugged into a backup drive.
Time Capsule solves that problem by combining a wireless N base station with a 500 GB or 1 Terabyte hard drive. “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.” Jobs said.
In addition to its wireless port, Time Capsule features two dual-band antennas (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies), three wired Gigabit ports, a USB 2.0 port, data encryption, and a built in firewall. Time capsule will be available in February and will sell for $299 (500 GB model) and $499 (1 Terabyte model).
