It seems like the Pogoplug has fallen out of favor with you, as far as online storage is concerned, and since mine just up and died the other day , I’m curious as to what y’all use for cloud storage, and/or what you would recommend. I could probably get away with 50GB or so and free would be great, but most importantly ease of access of the information, with streaming being a possibility. An Android app (like Pogoplugs) would be nice
As a side note, I don’t hear much about the Acer Iconia A500 tablet and I just wanted to tout it’s exceptional performance. I have Transformer and Galaxy tablets in the house (and of course the obligatory “Dumb-pad”) and it easily outperforms them all. Plus it was only $299 on sale! Just my 2 cents, Thanks for the info-tainment!
