Thanks for the mention - looks interesting. A 'modern day' dropbox?
From the web page https://pogoplug.com/#, it looks like these local
devices provide additional storage. e.g. To the 5GB available on the
cloud for free.
Am I reading the site correctly - pogoplug thus provides a way for
external users to access your internal pogoplug storage device, via
referencing pogoplug. [The user need only know about pogoplug, pogoplug
takes care of figuring out whether it's actually in the cloud or on the
device, and fetching it wherever it resides.]
So, the local device is not sync'ed to the cloud? I can't write files
directly to my local pogoplug device (speed) and have it auto-sync up to
It's additional storage, not replicated storage, so if it falls
over / gets stolen / whatever, it's gone - no recovery from a cloud
