"Cloud Engines announced a new version of its Marvell Plug Computer-based Pogoplug NAS and media-sharing device. The Pogoplug Pro adds one major new feature -- built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi -- and features Pogoplug software enhancements added in recent months, including Android 2.1 and iPad apps as well as cloud-based printing support.

"Normally, a one-feature upgrade is not enough to merit a story, but in this case, the product is the popular, Linux-based Pogoplug media server device, and the feature has been sorely in demand: Wi-Fi. As a result, the device can be kept hidden away, and Ethernet cable clutter can be reduced, says Cloud Engines.

"The Pogoplug Pro also appears to have lost the pink coloring that debuted in its second-generation version, and is now plain old black. Best of all, the device keeps its $99 price tag."
