    Meet the PogoPlug Pro

    Since it's launch, the PogoPlug has been an interesting little NAS device. The PogoPlug software has been continually updated with new features. There's a vibrant developer community.

One of the most common customer requests is for a wireless PogoPlug model, so that you don't need to locate the PogoPlug near your wireless router. Today that request is being (mostly) answered with a new 802.11 b/g/n wireless adapter for the PogoPlug. Read More

    The plucky little PogoPlug, which I reviewed last December, has seen a number of modest updates in the months since.

The word on the street today is that a whole new PogoPlug device is coming, called the PogoPlug Biz. It sports a white case, instead of the jarring pink… Read More
