Tech site iFixit has uploaded a new teardown for the latest AirPort Extreme, Apple's first 802.11ac wireless base station. Opening the device revealed an interior space to allow for a hard drive to be installed, however hopes of at-home storage upgrades were dashed by no available plug-in options on the logic board. The AirPort Extreme offers a Delta Electronics 12V, 5A power supply, much akin to Mac Mini technology. Thanks to a simply disassembly iFixit staff have categorized the wireless base station, along with Apple TV and Mac Mini, as the most repairable Apple product in recent history.

Update released for Microsoft Office for Mac 2011

Microsoft has released version 14.3.5 of Microsoft Office for Mac 2011. Calling it a security update, Microsoft states changes include fixing an issue regarding "IMAP-based email accounts in which the flagged or starred state of a message was not set correctly". The update can be obtained on Microsoft's support page or through AutoUpdate, and requires Office for Mac 2011 version 14.1.0 or later, as well as Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later.

So in essence the new Airport Extreme is just a Time Capsule with no plug-in and no hard drive. Makes sense, and saves Apple a ton of production money. I look forward to seeing if someone (coughOWCcough) comes up with a DIY kit to add (back) in a HD or SSD.
