Only Idiots buy on a WHIM
Not meaning to step on feet, but it always happens to those who have no patience. Always Always wait to see if something is working as it should before junping on a ship. Examples of what I mean. I am ordering a new apple computer today a mac pro with only a Gb of RAM and 256 video, with the 2.66GHz processor. I am not going to the top for a 8-core, its a waste of money. In 6 months it will be the same price as the one I am buying today. Next never ever buy a first release operating system. Tiger would be the one to own right now. Wait till about Christamas at the earliest for some major bugs to be worked out. Buy Leopard after it has been out at least 3 months I guarantee that many of the things like this so called wireless hook up to a HD for back up will be there and working. Apple always delivers, always, they just like to make sure its 99% perfect before they do. They more than likely found some security issues and wanted to release it later in a free update that can be downloaded. As for those who went out and bought wireless outfits for its sole use I dont know why you would do that anyway. I own the best and N-wireless system by Embarq made by 2wire. They offer the most secure DSL gateways I have seen to date. Absolutley blows apple and linksys away for range. As fo time machine I would not want to us it wireless, I would only use it if it were dedicated to my computer alone. I dont want others saving on a hard drive I am using. If you only use one it will get two to three times more use further shortening the life span. Thats how I feel. Trust me it will get released as promised once the bugs are worked out. Apple isnt going to tell you they are having problems with it. Check out the new notebooks also my wife is buying a 17" today just so she can get a regular background over the new LED types. She and I both hate change that is working.
