The Mac Pro is all about power and today Apple has laid down two models, one with a quad-core Intel Xeon “Nehalem” processor and the other with two of them.
Both come with a 640GB HDD as standard with 3GB of RAM on one and 6GB…
A nifty idea which has spawned an actual real-life book (full of paper! wondrous 1.0 words!), FutureMe.org is like an online time capsule which can email you in the future and remind you of whatever it was you wanted to be reminded about back when you typed those now-meaningless words in.
I was hoping to write a glowing report of Steve Jobs’ Macworld 2008 keynote presentation yesterday, but (even as an ardent Apple fan) I have found myself disappointed.
Granted, it was always going to be difficult for Apple to eclipse last year’s iPhone announcement, but I felt myself wanting more.
Maybe I’m getting too old, but I find myself desiring function much more than form. Perhaps it’s not surprising, then, that the product announcement I was most impressed with was the Time Capsule. That’s pretty sad in itself, because it amounts to not much more than an upgraded Airport Extreme with a large hard drive in it, and existing software built in to OS X Leopard.
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.
