Not exactly the end of the world, but apparently Apple made (or rather, repeated) a faux pas in the latest Time Capsule update and I'm not talking about the fact that it was just an increase in capacity as well. "Meh". In the technical specifications of the routers, Ma mentions that they are endowed with ?2TB or 3TB Serial ATA server-grade hard disk drive? emphasis on ?Server-grade?, which indicates a level of performance and reliability much higher than that of a regular HDD.

Consumer servers, certainly
This time Apple Brazil did well, because on the Portuguese page the incorrect translation appears as "Sophisticated 2TB or 3TB Serial ATA hard drive." No promises of server hard drives or anything.
Ah, there?s one more thing: I?m sorry to disappoint, but the new Time Capsule has no stars inside it. Not an A4 / A5 processor. Not even six antennas remain at four. Who knows in the next generation. : – /
