Then hopefully you've got yourself a Pogoplug, because thanks to the app that they've just released into the App Store, you can get yourself some iPad printing right now.

Pogoplug Biz targets business sharing with sober new chassi

We were big fans of the second-gen Pogoplug when we reviewed it back in April, and now the company has outed a business-centric version, the Pogoplug Biz.  Ditching the consumer model's hot pink chassis for a more sober, black finish - after all, we wouldn't want employees thinking it was a party in the office - the Pogoplug Biz adds in file tracking stats, custom email addresses and file-sharing pages, multiple user accounts and remote backup.

Pogoplug have announced their second-generation device, and it aims to build on the usability of the original multimedia sharing brick.  As well as a new hardware design, with four USB 2.0 ports versus the first-gen model's single port, there's also new software with better integration with social media and online galleries such as Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.  The core concept, however, remains the same: a sixty-second setup, basically amounting to plugging in at least one hard-drive, an ethernet connection and power, and registering the Pogoplug serial number to a free account online.
