Data Loss?

Have you ever been a victim of data loss? I think it’s not a regular problem but whenever it happens it gifts us a lot of headache. Now, Apple has come up with a hardware and software combination that makes backing-up data almost effortless. And, before you Windows users turn away in disgust, get this: You can benefit from the hardware too.

I’m talking about Time Capsule, a new device that combines a high-speed wireless router with either a 500 gigabyte (GB) or 1 terabyte hard drive. It’s primarily designed to work with Time Machine, the backup application that comes with Leopard, the latest version of Mac OS X. But, you can also use it with many Windows backup programs, or use it simply to store files you want to share, on a home network or over the Internet. The model with the smaller drive (if you can call 500 GB “small”) is also very good value at $299. Apple’s $179 AirPort Extreme lets you connect an external drive to create what’s basically the same thing, and Time Capsule, in some instances, costs less than adding a 500 GB drive to the router. You can buy a USB 2.0-based 500 GB drive for between $100 and $150. The latest model on which Time Capsule is based now has Gigabit Ethernet hard-wired connections. It also has the USB 2.0 connection for an external drive or a printer.
