"As reported in our initial coverage of the Linux-based Marvell SheevaPlug platform and Plug Computer design in February, the Pogoplug enables remote viewing of external storage devices via a web browser. The device connects to an external hard drive or memory stick via USB, and to a router via gigabit Ethernet, says Cloud Engines. The 4.0 x 2.5 x 2.0-inch device plugs directly into a wall socket, and enables remote uploading of multimedia, including access from an Apple iPhone.

"Now shipping, the device has been updated this week via automated downloads to support 32- and 64-bit Linux desktops, as well as 64-bit versions of Windows and Mac computers. With the new search function, users can find specific files using their iPhone or Pogoplug web application without having to manually search the entire drive, says the company. Other touted upgrades include the ability to input multiple email addresses at a time for simplified sharing, as well as the ability to add personalized messages with each share invitation."
