I am always looking for new cool gadgets that make my Internet and computing life easier. Pogoplug fits that description perfectly.
This little device connects to your home network via standard network cable and lets you share all you selected files over the Internet. It seems I am always at a friends house or some away place that I need some file from my home computer and this is the answer. Pogoplug has a USB 2.0 interface so you can add a hard drive or a USB stick if you so desire instead of the hard drive in your computer.
Security is always a big question when sharing files. Pogoplug uses HTTPS for secure password protected access over the Internet. iPhone users have a app that they can download to access your Pogoplug. Cost is $129.00 from the Pogoplug web site. A quick search did not find a cheaper price for this new version.
