    Just an FYI: I called one of the local Apple resellers here in Omaha & they informed me that are scheduled to have a shipment of the Time Capsules in on this Wednesday, February 20th.

    did the same thing a few weeks back...

    and the lady on the phone said "February 12th," without a bit of hesitation. When the 12th came, I called them back, and not only did they not have them (obviously), they said that nobody knew when they'd be released and had no idea where the previous person got their information. called two other stores, and they said the same. My guess is February 29th (ala iPhone will be released in June - came out June 29th 2007).

    Apple resellers don't know anything more than the public when it comes to release dates, etc...

    time capsule: too small for most of us

    What concerns me is the small size of the drive. There is a USB port to attach an external harddrive to it but this does not make sense. The capsule should be 2 TB or more or at least have a firewire port or a SATA port so that a giant harddrive could be connected to it.
    Does anyone else feel this way???

    Most users aren't going to need more than 2TB (at least in today's computing standards, 3 years from now this statement will be void).

    Makes sense. But I want my TC now.

    The Time Capsule is obviously meant to be an affordable consumer-oriented networked backup solution. 1 TB is more than enough for 90% of consumers (today).

    1tb is plenty. My iMac and My families computer both have a 250gb HDD and my laptop along with my bro's laptop's hard drive is about 220gb all together so that's still got a good 30gb left. And that is considering if the drives were completely full, which they aren't

    do you think the hard drive in the TC can be easily removed? I'd like to buy one, but won't if the drive can't be replaced by the user, without voiding the warranty.

    truth. good friend of mine worked at the times square store and he never had any helpful info. he was even convinced about a year ago that the iphone would never actually exist.
