Researchers developed a computer model of a human heart to study whether certain drugs will help treat an abnormal heartbeat, or cause serious side effects
San Francisco’s Cloud Engines has announced its first mobile-focused device at IFA 2011. Pogoplug Mobile will allow users to securely stream entire libraries of digital content from connected storage in their homes to their Android or iOS mobile phone and tablet, without having to worry about monthly fees or storage limits. It will also cater for private sharing of media with family and friends and could well be the perfect companion for Amazon’s Cloud Drive and Player or Apple’s upcoming iCloud service.
With the launch of the Pogoplug diskless file server in 2009, Cloud Engines gave users the power to access home content on the road. The company’s new mobile cloud companion takes that to the next level, allowing Android and iOS mobile device owners to stream entire libraries of photos, music, movies and other digital media from home-based storage to their mobile phone and tablet.
Whereas other online storage services require users to upload digital media to third party cloud servers for storage and retrieval, the Pogoplug Mobile device is connected to a home router via Ethernet and then hooked up to an external storage drive via USB or a camera’s photo album via the onboard media card reader. The device works with Pogoplug desktop software, free-to-download mobile apps for Android and iOS devices and through a browser-based online account. Once set up, a mobile device user opens the app to get always-on access to the personal digital content linked to the Pogoplug Mobile box.
