    I have a back up external HD and a backup of my back up external, but I want one more back up just in case my house burns down or is broken into.

    I know Time Capsule is wireless, but does it back up off site like how Carbonite or Mozy do? Those products don't seem to be all they are cracked up to be, and would rather give Apple my business if I can.

    Is Time Capsule what I'm looking for? Does it back up to a Cloud area in cyber space that I can access anywhere ala dropbox, or is it's thing that it only transfers back up data wireless but it's still in your house.

    A Time Capsule is a combination of a router, NAT box, stateful firewall, hard disk, NAS, and wireless AP.

    It stores its data on a 1-2TB HDD that is on the machine, and you can hook up another USB2 hard disk on its external port.

    It does nothing with the cloud of yet.
