"What's not to love about a £99 Linux-based device that requires little time to set up, no computer for connectivity, no monthly fees and only a web browser for access to your files from anywhere in the world? Yes, its radioactive pink colour might seem a bit off-putting upon first glance, but after you connect the Pogoplug and discover its power, you won't care if it glows in the dark (but don't worry – it doesn't). This particular pink and white gadget is actually San Francisco-based CloudEngine's second version of the device to carry the Pogoplug moniker. That said, this model bears almost no resemblance to the original except for its performance and functionality. A complete redesign gives the Pogoplug II a more modern and attractive form. The updated Pogoplug has four USB 2.0 ports: one up front and three on the posterior. The wired LAN port and electrical plug are also located on the rear of the device. A cable wrangler on the back of the case prevents the Pogoplug and associated USB drives from looking like a spaghetti explosion."
