The newly revamped Pogoplug looks really amazing, but that's not all it does. It enables you to push some of your data into your own personal cloud computer, thanks to internet connectivity, and stream it to anyone in the world, while leaving your data on your hard drives at all times.
Cloud Engine's Pogoplug not only enables you to share data between computers and the internet, but it also looks pretty spiffy. Both hardware and software have been improved. The Pogoplug now supports 4 USB devices. The Pogoplug is a sort of adapter that can transform USB hard drives into network attached storage (NAS), which means that you can access your data from anywhere when your Pogoplug is in your home network. What's more is that Pogoplug acts like a gateway. You can access, share, and even stream your media to anybody. Your data remains on your hard drives.
It can also synchronize files between connected computers, meaning that organizing photos and videos has never been easier. You also have options to share content instantly via Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace. It's even work on your iPhone.
While we'd like to have seen a wireless version of the Pogoplug, we still think that it's a really easy way of setting up an something that's pretty close to a home server. If you've got a few USB drives hanging about, then you should try this out. You'll never be without your data again, since you can access it via any internet connection. Pogoplugs are scheduled to ship in December and will cost $129 a piece.
