repairing an overheated Apple Time Capsule

After some years of work without issues, my Time Capsule begun to show some trouble with fan going on at full speed. Then in the last week of August it has suddenly died with a looooooong beep.

In this video it’s been show how-to correctly disassemble an Apple Time Capsule and clean / recondition a faulty fan. From a technical standpoint the entire process is a PITA and to me it’s a real design error the placement of the unique fan and the fact that in the Capsule there’s no opening on the top to facilitate the heat dissipation!

Two months after the scandal it’s interesting to see how mass reaction to the event was non-existent and now Facebook still operates as if nothing happened. Maybe GDPR is not perfect, but it shows that Laws can protect us when it seems we do not want to be protected.

I support Stories of Apple. You should too…

It’s a know fact my long time friendship with Nicola D’Agostino. It’s also known that we share a certain number of passion and interests, among with the software and the hardware made in Cupertino, California. And lots of times here, on Twitter and around the web I’ve talked about some cool content on his project Stories of Apple

Storie di Apple - logo

Today I’d like to spend some more words on this project, inviting you to support this historiographical job that he’s making since 2007 (in this form). Staring with a 2$/month contribute you can sponsor his work thanks to the crowdfunding site  Patreon.
With this money we can support his job maintaining 2 websites, 1 Instagram account, a rich Tumblr profile and some exclusive content over Patreon website itself…

If I get enough support by readers on Patreon, I will be able to write more original stuff and even try my hand at some more ambitious projects, like regular columns and videos.

Over the Patreon platform you will be able to check the level of support you’re more comfortable: starting with the Vice President level (2$ per month) up to  iCEO (15$ or more per month) 😀 … each with his own level of benefits and ‘power’ in the future of the project.
As in any of his actions, very politely and humbly Nicola has decided to undertake this financing road to better realize this enormous job of documenting Apple (and computing) history over the decades, avoiding the worst form of monetization available today (banners, targeted ads, hidden referral links and so on). He respects his readers, but he’s in a position to ask for help to go on…

I have decided to support Stories Of Apple and this take on web content publications by Nicola, and I’ve started as a Vice President… if we ‘all’ join in we can contribute to enrich the Web with a little and shiny diamond…
