Pretty in pink: Pogoplug

The unit, now in its second generation design, aims to make digital content available to you when you're travelling. Files are accessed though either a web browser, Windows Explorer or Mac OS X's Finder.

Content can also be shared with friends and family to whom you have granted access, and you can stream it to mobile devices - handy if you want to view your vidoes on your iPhone or Nexus One while you're out and about.

Pogoplug will cost £99. ®
