Server grade my rosy red butt!
Well, well, well, Mr. Apple. Lie much? Apple’s Time Capsule doesn’t have a “server grade” hard drive in it — as they claim on their website. Instead they use a hard drive that I would keep pictures of a dead squirrel on, the 1 TB Hitachi Deskstar HDS721010KLA330. That’s right, people: the HDS721010KLA330. That’s like putting a DRX3230103309A in place of a 449332ADHD233! The drive is found mostly on desktops but since server grade essentially means “it can fit in a server,” there’s no official definition we can fall back on so we have to get up in arms about this.
Come on, Apple. Throw us a bone and don’t lie to us. It’s just not nice.
