Apple isn't using the phrase "home server," but the first announcement from Steve Jobs here at Macworld Expo this morning is a new device called "Time Capsule," which he said will work with the Time Machine feature in the new Mac OS X Leopard to help people back up their personal media and data over their home networks.

It's an Airport Extreme wireless base station with a large hard drive. The 500 GB version will sell for $299, the 1 terabyte version for $499, and they'll be available in February.

"These are very aggresive prices because we want people backing up their content," Jobs said.
