    Maybe there's something wrong with me, but how can you go forward in Time Machine?

    Well you obviously can't go past the present into the future. They haven't added that option yet. :p

    I assume they meant that if you go back to a point one year ago you still have the option of restoring a point only 6 months old (forward in time) if you choose.
