be careful. my pogoplug device corrupted 2 of my external drives. some data is lost. I didn't unplug my drives at all. Just moving data around. I don't believe it was fast enough thru IP versus USB directly on your computer.
Can you explain? How did it happen? What did PP's support do and what was their explanation?

Quote from Escamillooo View Post :
I just started looking into a Pogoplug recently so I don't have to store my music on all my computers/devices.

Is there any reason to need the $50 Pogoplug 4 over this one for $15?

Actually, if music is my main reason for one of these, is there something better I should know about?
Not sure if this would work, and you would need to be a little geeky. But I think if you used a router with a built-in print server (via USB) and put DDWRT on it you could likely plug in a usb hard drive. Never tried it but the Asus router I have uses "USB over Ethernet" for it's "print server". Which means it has no print server, it has a usb over ethernet port.

Of course, if the USB ext hard drive is powered by USB this may not work; and, it also depends on the router itself and such. Someone more geeked'out in this area will likely chime in and fill in the facts. Probably not easy or reliable though... And don't forget that if the CPU in your router gets bogged down your internet will SUFFER. (Port Address Translation - not "routing" is the process your router does and it is extremely CPU dependent.)

Great point. THanks. Salient details for all:

"If the worst happens and Pogoplug does shut down, whoever restarts the service would have to re-gain the trust of users, who would need to re-configure their accounts and get new passwords to use the service again.

Even so, I like the dead-man's switch aspect to Pogoplug's escrow plan. While it won't guarantee that the product will resurrect if the company dies, it does at least make it possible--maybe even likely.

I'm surprised more companies, especially Web companies that store customer data, don't have public doomsday plans"

BTW, why are you un-reppable? No Rep button shows up on your post.

Only if you made the tragic decision to go with ATT or Verizon. Sprint unlimited has not complained when I have sailed past what would have been caps on ATT or Verizon.

To this day I don't why people pay higher rates for less bandwidth.

Sprint FTW and Ting might just be better.
I'm sure many could say the same about the speeds of Sprint. Then again if you are one of the 268 ppl in a 4G area, maybe you're happy.

Then again I get super fast speeds, cheaper price, and completely unlimited with my T-Mo. So I'm content enough atm.

if you use their web interface or apps, then it goes through their web service. like a redirect.

but if I remember correctly the company promised to release their code if they go belly up.
http://blog.pogoplug.com/what-hap...siness-84/

now, you can only trust them that they will do this.


but since this thing is so cheap and can easily be repurposed to do other stuff, it's not a big deal.
Thanks.

I think they can be trusted to release the code, since it is in escrow and a bankruptcy court should be required to release it. However, it will still take a new company to fire it up and do the redirects, so it is not automatic.

I wonder if individuals could perform that service for themselves?

Now, now. Many cities have Sprint 4G, including mine.

But yes, I hear that TMO is also non-tragic like Sprint and unlike the limits of ATT and Verizon, which is why I did not mention TMO along with with ATT and Verizon.

Is this like Dropbox? except you own the hard drive and run it a home?

How is the app? Is it as good as Dropbox? (like titanium back support, share files to friends, etc).

Thanks!

Heck yeah I'm in for 1. I've previously bought 3 Pogoplug E02s, added a flash drive and HD webcam, and made a megapixel IP camera with them. The WiFi this thing adds is just topping to the cake. Esp since you can just use a memory card instead of flash drive, now its even less clutter and just add a usb webcam. My method uses mjpg_streamer, and it uses the linux uvc video thats in the newer kernels such as arch linux. The process will be similar to this: LINK [blogspot.com]

Connect it to your network, signup at pogoplug, add a hdd or usb drive, read, write files locally or from the web, share some or all files/folders with everyone, no-one, or select people.
