15 January 2008 @ 17:45Time Capsule – more than a wireless drive
I was apathetic about the Time Capsule upon first hearing of it, but as I read more about it, it seems like a piece of hardware with many useful features. Its primary function is a wireless backup drive, but it also acts as a wireless base station, wireless printer server, and a router with customizable internet restrictions.
In addition to being the best way to back up a Mac, Time Capsule is also a full-featured Wi-Fi base station with the latest 802.11n technology. Delivering up to five times the performance and twice the range of 802.11g, 802.11n* is built in to Apple’s iMac® desktop and the entire Mac notebook line up, including MacBook®, MacBook Pro and the new MacBook Air. Time Capsule features a sleek design with a built-in power supply and connections to print wirelessly to a USB printer. With Time Capsule, it’s very easy for users to create a secure, wireless network for up to 50 users and set security restrictions such as Internet access limits for children’s computers. (#)
My next wireless router may be a Time Capsule.
