Apple updated Time Capsules to 3TB

The long awaited refresh for Time Capsules and Airport Extreme is finally here. But it was a disappointing one. Apple only added 1TB more on the new Time Capsule, nothing else has been change. Airport Extreme have no changes at all, not even price. This is one of my most disappointed refresh ever.

Time Capsule and Airport Extreme have been around for quite some time. I thought if Apple have nothing to update on the 2 accessories, they should have reduce the price as network technology from Airport Extreme is not the newest anymore. So I assume producing it will be much cheaper over time too.

Nevertheless, if you are interested in purchasing a new Time Capsule, you now can buy the 3TB Time Capsule at USD$499.

Time Capsules and Airports to be refresh on WWDC 2011?

Apple’s routers refreshing soon?

Time Capsules, Airport Express and Airport Extreme are reportedly experiencing shortages. I don’t think Apple should be facing production issue with them as they have been around almost 2 years. Thus we might be seeing refreshes of them! This is a great news to me as I’m looking at changing my router!

iCloud integration on Time Capsules, Airport Extreme and Airport Express?

But of course, why refresh Time Capsules and Airports together with iCloud? Apple is known to very successful in integrating their services with hardware. So can it be that Time Capsules and Airport Express and Airport Extreme will be closely tied to iCloud? We might be seeing some offline caching of iClouds data on Apple Routers, thus minimizing data transfer from Apple’s Data center to your Macs. How cool will it be?

So let’s stay tuned to check out if Apple will be refreshing their routers together with their up and coming iCloud during WWDC’11.
