A man is taking Apple to court over its problem-plagued Time Capsule, saying the failure of the back-up storage device caused him to lose precious memories. As the CBC reports, Perminder Tung used the Time Capsule to back up two laptops and an iPhone and to store his photos. The Canadian man claims that the device failed last month and that Apple told him that data on it was irretrievable. Tung, a lawyer, says the data included the birth of his first child and is now demanding $25,000 from Apple to compensate him for the broken device and the lost memories.
