Simply adding memory - upgrading to 4GB RAM can really help performance.
You can now have your personal cloud. Run an Ethernet cable from the Pogoplug to your home router, install a bit of software on your main machine, and you can backup your choice of folders to the USB drive.
On the road you can access any of the folders from any browser by logging into MyPogoplug.com and downloading whatever you need.
