Sounds great! But can I use the Backup tool to do my backups to a hard disk on another computer in my office? Reading the Backup Help file, it doesn't sound like this is possible. How could that be?

    That's a really good point. I think what we're seeing with this version of Backup is Apple's vision for .Mac integration into your everyday life. It's a great vision, but in the long run I think they'll realize that it's a bit too narrow. Yes, you should be able to use Backup with a variety of devices. My guess is that we will see that functionality before too long.
