APPLE'S BUILD QUALITY goes from strength to strength with users of its expensive Time Capsule product complaining that it bricks their hard-drives.
The Apple Time Capsule Memorial Register, which went live over weekend, has already logged 294 dead devices that have been killed by Apple's rogue Time Capsule.
The site assures those who have lost a hard-drive to Apple's superior build quality that they are not alone.
"Please take a moment and submit a few details of your beloved Time Capsule. You will instantly notice it will make you feel better, but will also help others facing the same difficult period in their lives," the site consoles.
Apparently the average life expectancy of a Time Capsule is 18 months, which makes it a definite chocolate teapot when comes to backup. Still Apple is not really interested in gear that is more than a year old as it feels that people should be buying its too cool expensive gear every year.
Apple has been following its normal policy of denying that any problem exists, despite floods of complaints on various bulletin boards.
Timecapsuledead.org was created by a Mac user who goes by the moniker "zmippie" on Apple's support forum.
Current theories are that Time Capsule's high quality, made in China and blessed by Steve, power supplies are giving up the ghost, or internal connections in the power supplies are failing.
It is possible to bring a Time Capsule back from the dead using an external power supply but this is a little too complicated for the average Machead. Besides, this workaround has not been blessed by Steve Jobs.
Apple currently flogs two models of the Time Capsule. One is a 1TB backup device for $299 and there is also a 2TB model for $499. µ
