The dust is settling from Steve Jobs’ Macworld 2008 keynote, which was lacking in new iPhones, but had plenty of other big announcements to chew over. The unveiling of the MacBook Air super-slim notebook was the highlight, measuring just 0.76 inches at its thickest point, but offering a 13.3-inch screen, 80GB hard drive, and Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
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.
We like to be prepared: in a little over eight hours time, Steve Jobs will give his keynote presentation at this year’s Macworld conference.
