Time Machine refresh?

Does anyone think Apple will be updating the 500GB and 1TB Time Machines to 1TB and 2TB respectively this year?

it's possible, but i think they've updated the time capsule every two years...but with cheaper storage on the rise, we should see a 1 and 2 TB option soon for these to be competitive.

is there a 2TB Time Capsule? I thought it was just the half TB and 1 TB?

Just to let you know, Apple updated!

Do these things get crazy hot like the appleTV? I've consistently chosen the extreme over the time capsule because of this fear.
$299 for 802.11n + 1TB backup is a pretty good deal.

Went for it - just bought the 1TB version. I think this is great value right now.

it gets warm, but I wouldn't say crazy hot at all. I just leave to top of it clear and have never had an issue.

I've been using the 1T for about a year & Time Machine backup to it from 4 mac's. Works great & no problems. Have been thinking about doing back-to-my-mac through but haven't gotten the courage. Thinking about getting the 2T with 2 radios but the price is still a bit much.

Have set up back-to-my-mac and used it recently for the first time (used my MBP to access the home iMac). Accessing the host drive was fine; screen sharing wasn't successful.
