A New Cloud Drive With a Twist From Pogoplug


pogoplug-150.jpgYesterday, Richard’s cloud drive article made note of Dropbox and Google Docs and other cloud storage providers. There is a new take on this from a company called Cloud Engines with their Pogoplug service. It combines the typical cloud drive with a piece of hardware. Here is how it works.

You purchase the device, called Pogoplug Mobile for $80. It is about the size of a small paperback, and has ports for SD and USB drives, wired Ethernet and power. Before you hook everything up, you can use either the SD card or a standard USB thumb drive to store backup copies of your files. Next, you connect it to your network and hence to the Internet, register the device and download client software to add other files.
