Apple Time Capsule using WD desktop HDD: Is this a “server grade” drive?

Apple Time Capsule using WD desktop HDD: Is this a “server grade” drive?

Teardowns of Apple's freshly updated Time Capsule have led to questions over what constitutes a "server grade hard disk" as per the company's promotional material, given it appears a regular Western Digital drive has been used. According to Apple, the new Time Capsule offers either 2TB or 3TB of "server grade" storage; when Hardmac opened their 2TB unit up, however, they discovered a standard WD Caviar Green HDD inside, rather than a specific enterprise-spec drive.

Apple Time Capsule refresh with iCloud inside?

Apple Time Capsule refresh with iCloud inside?

I mentioned yesterday that there are some shortages of Apple gear in some locations and online. The shortages were for some of the Apple Airport devices and the Time Capsule unit. Generally, a shortage of things in Apple Stores is a good indication that a refresh is imminent and with WWDC kicking off soon perhaps, the shortages mean new products being unveiled. A source has tipped 9to5Mac that the Airport Express supply is plentiful in most places, but the supply of the Time Capsule and Airport Extreme are in fact very tight globally.

Apple Time Capsule to reach 2TB?

Apple Time Capsule to reach 2TB?

Now, this is probably just a rumor that will end up nowhere, but it seems there's some buzz floating about that Apple will be updating their Time Capsule device shortly, ramping up the storage to 2 terabytes worth of space.

What's strange about this is that Apple recently updated the Time Capsule and the Airport Extreme--just last month, in fact--so it seems rather unlikely we'd be seeing this update anytime soon.

But a tipster saw on a ClubMac promo box pic that the Time Capsule clearly has 2TB of space. So, I guess we'll just have to take the wait and see approach on this one. Regardless, a roomier device would make sense--2 TB is what other storage companies have recently launched like Seagate and Western Digital....

Apple Time Capsule Review – Backup Made Easy for Leopard Users

Apple Time Capsule Review – Backup Made Easy for Leopard Users

Data backup falls resolutely at the dreary end of the tech-task scale; periodically market researchers release stats showing how few people take the time to safely copy their accumulated files, usually prompting a guilty DVD burning session which never gets repeated. Apple's Time Capsule, then, was welcomed with excited upon its announcement; with the slick, careful design Apple are renowned for, could they manage to make even backup sexy? To be fair, it's a pretty huge challenge. You'll be hard-pressed to find a nicer looking network hard-drive, or one so straightforward to set up, but Time Capsule undoubtedly has its caveats.

Apple Time Capsule NAS storage

Apple Time Capsule NAS storage

This think got its name partly from its intended use, you see currently you have to have a wired, direct-connected hard drive in order to use Time Machine, but with this thing, you can backup wirelessly, or over a network, if you wanted to, and you can backup directly to this drive instead of some other external drive. If this thing works with PC’s as well as Macs, and if it works as just plain old NAS as well as backup storage, than this will by far be my favorite release that was announced today. It’s also the only announcement where the product isn’t available now, in fact, it won’t be available until February.

Geek walks into Apple Store with broken Time Capsule, walks out with drive full of Apple documents

Geek walks into Apple Store with broken Time Capsule, walks out with drive full of Apple documents

Sometimes weird things happen at Apple. Losing one iPhone at a bar is odd enough; losing a second, the same way is downright weird. The latest snafu at Apple is firmly on the weird side as well. Apparently, a guy took his malfunctioning Time Capsule back up drive into an Apple Store. When he left with the drive and got home the owner realized he had a bit of extra content on the old supposedly broken hard drive.

New Apple AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule confirmed in Airport Utility update

New Apple AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule confirmed in Airport Utility update

Earlier in June, we talked a bit about the shortages of the Apple AirPort and Time Capsule devices and figured at the time that the shortages pointed to new models coming. We also heard that the new devices might have the ability to cache software updates for all sorts of Apple gear from your iPhone to your MacBook so you could update all your devices from your local network. The new devices and the caching feature have now been confirmed.
