apple base station and time capsule updates

after time capsule hit the streets a number of people i know started scratching their heads saying, “the old 802.11n airport basestation’s had a usb port on the back that a hard drive could be connected to – why can we not use that for backup, without buying time capsule?”

time capsule is an airport 802.11n base station WITH a hard drive build in… with the update from wednesday (3-19-08) from apple, the airport extreme gets a software update as well as time machine and NOW any drives connected to a airport base station can be used for time machine – it does not need to be time capsule… yeah!
