The software could be useful to stream pictures, music or movies to another computer or a mobile device (Android, iPhone, iPad, etc.), and since multiple devices can be linked to a single account, you can access files from any of them individually or see all the… → Read More
PogoPlug, the host-it-yourself file sharing appliance, has a few new things for you. First there’s the PogoPlug Video, which adds easy streaming of videos from your location, without the need to transcode the source. Videos are streamable to the PogoPlug mobile apps on iOS and Android, as well as Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and “most media players and Internet-enabled TVs.” The other big release is… → Read More
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. And, most interestingly to me, the PogoPlug does not try to hide the fact that it runs Linux; indeed, they even tell you how to SSH into the thing! The recently released business-oriented PogoPlug Biz offered… → Read More
PogoPlug keeps getting better and better. Today they’re announcing that wireless printing, first mentioned earlier this summer, is now available. Users can print from iPads, iPhones, Androids and pretty much any other Internet-connected device. While you’re vacationing in Rio, you can print off instructions for your buddy who’s house sitting for you! Or you can print off a stack of vacation photos… → Read More
I’m a big fan of PogoPlug devices. They’re super simple to use, and they’re pretty regularly updated with new features based on customer input. 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. All of these updates are rolled out automatically, so unless you’re following the PogoPlug blog you might never know about them. 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
PogoPlug just released its upgraded Android app. The app allows you to browse media and music on connected drives, share files publicly from drives, and search for files. You can also manage the folders on your connected drives.
Our readers are awesome. They are always trying to help. For instance we just got an email explaining the process needed to get the Seagate Dockstar to work on a local network without using Pogoplug. Here, let me give you the back story.
The PogoPlug storage sharing solution sees a new firmware version release today, adding two major new features. First, XBox 360 and Playstation3 consoles can access media stored on a PogoPlug, making it easier than ever to enjoy media on your television without any new investments. Second, multiple PogoPlugs can now work together to offer remote backup functionality to ensure your data is always… → Read More
PogoPlug has gotten a fair bit of coverage here at CrunchGear, including a full review of the original PogoPlug device. A new version was recently released, with quite a bit more to offer, so an updated review is in order. The second generation PogoPlug supports up to four USB drives, offers gigabit Ethernet, has mobile clients for the major smartphones, and has a burgeoning independent developer… → Read More
The PogoPlug, reviewed earlier this year, is a simple no-fuss NAS solution. I enjoyed using the product, and so have many other folks. In just the few short months since my review, the crew at PogoPlug have updated the hardware and features, and are rolling out their latest iteration. The new PogoPlug features four USB ports, a new address book feature, global search across all the drives attached… → Read More
When I reviewed the PogoPlug USB NAS adapter last week, I mentioned that an iPhone app was in the works. That app just hit the Apple App Store, and is available for free now. The PogoPlug iPhone app allows users to stream music (or movies) that they don’t have room to store, back up photos as they’re taken, or read docs stored at home. That, my friends, is a pretty cool application of… → Read More
