Time Machine

Time Machine is the backup software which will ship with Apple’s new Leopard operating system. I was one of the people who was pretty underwhelmed when it was released as a major new feature. Yeah.. it’s a backup?!

Well done. I stumbled across this article today, giving me a new found respect for the engineers and programmers who made this feature a reality.

Appleinsider has written a fascinating 4-page article about the history of back-up, and exactly what Time Machine aims to do.
