The Cat Walk - by Catherine "Cat" Hwang
Catherine Hwang has been blogging about software deals on Download.com for some time now but she also loves tech as much as any of us at CNET. She also uses a lot of the software, apps and services she blogs about so we asked her to do a Pogoplug Cloud Walk-Through for our members. Let us know what you think and perhaps we might even be able to persuade her to do a video walk-through next time.
Pogoplug Cloud Quick Take
Live without boundaries and free yourself from one too many cloud storage options that only limits your ability to get organized. I've tried many other cloud solutions, but none like Pogoplug. With Pogoplug, can I not only access my files on the go, but I can stream my music and video content that's living on my home computer from anywhere - five miles away from home or ten thousand miles away from home. The beauty of not being limited by the amount of storage option is yet another reason why I've moved over to Pogoplug, almost entirely.
With Pogoplug's new Cloud feature, it may just tip me over to 100 percent, so I would recommend Pogoplug to anyone, who's looking to try a new cloud storage option, where you call the shots. With Pogoplug, you are only limited by the amount of storage space you have on your computer or external hard drives, which is more than any other cloud options out there, not to mention that it's free. Exclusively on CNET for three days only, you get 10 GB of free cloud storage just for being a CNET member. Join me - plug into the cloud with Pogoplug and live freely.
