Apple Time Machine User Interface Win

Earlier this year, a shiny new iMac graced my home (increasing my resale value by about 10%, according to Zillow). Since then, I’ve had to replace my keyboard three times due to drool damage.

It happened again tonight, this time compliments of the Time Machine menu bar icon (I know, it’s a curse).

I noticed months ago that the icon spins while Time Machine is backing up my iMac. But that’s not the drool feature. The little hands on the clock spin, but they go backwards! It’s a gentle reminder that Time Machine lets you go back in time to restore your files.

Awesome, but now it’s time for another new keyboard.

  1. You may want to invest in a waterproof keyboard http://www.ruggedtech.com/symcod.html. It doesn’t look fun to type on but it will survive your kids. Buy a mac keyboard too but put it high on a shelf when your done and let your kids use the waterproof one. I wonder if the iMac can support multiple keyboards.
