Consumer Electronics Show: Pogoplug puts a cloud in your house
Cloud computing is a hot topic, with tech giants like Apple, Google and Microsoft all offering up space for your data on their servers. The only problem is that your data are on their servers, and who knows where they are? Certainly leaves a lot of room for worry. Cue Pogoplug's arrival at this year's Consumer Electronics show.
For just $99 you can go to your local electronics retailer and bring home your very own cloud. Just plug it in to your home network, attach one or more USB hard drives, log on to the Pogoplug website and you're in business. No monthly fees to pay, no worries about where your information has been and no limit to where you can access it from.
