Apple Owes Me $99 · I’ve al­ready whined about the Ap­ple Time Cap­sule we bought ear­li­er this year; it’s a rare in­stance of an Ap­ple Prod­uct that Just Doesn’t Work. There are two prob­lem­s: First, if I get on­line while Lau­ren is, this locks up her WhiteBook so bad­ly she has to re­boot; we can’t share WiFi. Se­cond, I have to run the Time Ma­chine back­ups by hand and I al­so have to con­nect by wire for big ones, be­cause the de­fault set­up leaves my Black­Book in an end­less “Preparing Backup” cy­cle. So I went and bought an­oth­er WiFi router for $99, and now at least we can both be on the Net. I’d ad­vise cau­tion with the Time Cap­sule prod­uct un­til Apple’s done a cou­ple more re­leas­es of the hard­ware and OS X too. Pfui.
