Apple has JUST announced (less than 1 minute ago) a new software product called Time Machine. It takes aim at the data backup / retreival market and promises to make backing up data easy and more widespread.
automatically backs up mac
you change a file, it automatically backs up
photos, music, documents, files folder, everything
then you can restore everything
I think it takes a similar approach as Windows System Restore. But for ALL your files. You can retrieve any file by simply entering a date and time. A timeline of the file’s life is displayed; letting you choose what version of the file you’d like to recover. Yesterday’s Word document? Your wedding photo BEFORE you cropped your mother-in-law out? Voila!
You can “warp” your desktop back to another place in time. Hence the name Time Machine. Pretty sweet!
