Yeah, and so was NT backup, 10 years ago. The only thing "simple" is that Time Machine backs up all files by default. To not backup the crap you don't want, you have to start configuring. Most backup software is the opposite - you *select* what you want. I wonder if Apple have patented this wonderful technology yet - that the "Select All" option is *pre-selected*. Stunning innovation!

"SATA II misnomer

Popular usage may refer to the 3.0 Gbit/s specification as "Serial ATA II" ("SATA II" or "SATA2"), contrary to the wishes of the Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO) which defines the standard. SATA II was originally the name of a committee defining updated SATA standards, of which the 3 Gbit/s standard was just one. However since it was among the most prominent features defined by the former SATA II committee, the name SATA II became synonymous with the 3 Gbit/s standard, so the group has since changed names to the Serial ATA International Organization, or SATA-IO, to avoid further confusion."
