New Airport Extreme and Time Capsule

Can anyone think of a reason for Apple putting only USB 2 on the brand new Airport Extreme/Timecapsule?

Perhaps they do not want to encourage use of Third Party Peripherals on their new AE?

Another option is to purchase a Password Manager such as 1Password.

Abby Fine Reader

AbbyyFineReader is available in the App Store is and is one of the better OCR Software out there.
Fujitsu's ScanSnap OCR Scanners all use this Software and it works really well.

Off Site Storage

Hi Dave,

One quick question, do you have off site storage of all of your data.
I know you said 400 GB Cloud Storage but you qualified that by saying for "current photos and projects".
