Pogoplug becomes pure software, opens DIY floodgates

Turn any PC or Mac into the most powerful Pogoplug yet

Pogoplug is often known as the cute “plug” that transforms a USB hard drive into a network attached storage (NAS) with a powerful (yet, super easy to use) web media server. More recently, it has become the force behind a number of  NAS designs as it was directly embedded in the disks themselves. Now, Pogoplug will come as a pure software solution which will transform your computer(s) into the most powerful Pogoplug yet.Yes, you read that right: with a single Pogoplug account, you can use multiple computers/devices as Pogoplug servers to build your own cloud that serves media files. This is pretty cool, and we would be curious to see what people are going to come up with.

The base version is free, but if you want to stream movies you will have to upgrade to the “Premium” version, which costs $29 (one-time fee, for all your computers).  If you want to try it for yourself, here are the links to the download versions for Windows and Mac OS.  This is a surprising, but agreeable development for Pogoplug.
