Pogoplug

Cloud Engines has announced Pogoplug at CES, a small device that connects a user's external hard drive to the Internet. The device is designed to make network-attached storage simple and only involves attaching the Pogoplug to a home router and the drive in question to the plug. A web front end lets users then gain access to all the information on the drive regardless of the location. The plug itself is compatible with any USB 2 hard drive or memory stick, while the Pogoplug website can be used with any web browser.

Remote control is also available through an iPhone application, allowing users access to stored media and the ability to upload photos directly to the drive over 3G or Wi-Fi. Pogoplug has yet to be given a release date but is priced at $100. Currently, the company is offering a limited time deal where people can pre-order the product for $80.

    not new

    Looks like the Pogoplug is just a reinvention of the Linksys NSLU2, which you can learn more about at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NSLU2.

    On the other hand, since the Linksys isn't manufactured any more, perhaps there's a need for this product.
