Like the Cloud Engines PogoPlug Mobile; LaCie has launched a new device that lets you share your USB storage device.  The LaPlug allows you to access your storage device on your home network (wired or via Wi-Fi) or remotely through an Internet connection.  LaPlug connects to your home network via its Ethernet port and is then accessible, wirelessly; it supports Wi-Fi b/g/n access points.  LaPlug can stream multimedia content and back up multiple computers to one central location. Or connect a USB printer to the LaPlug and make it wirelessly available to all computers on the network.

LaPlug is UPnP/DLNA-certified; therefore, you can access it using any other compatible device such as your Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or the LaCie LaCinama Classic HD. LaPlug also supports remote access, providing private cloud storage and streaming via the internet. The LaPlug also comes with its own backup software that lets you back all the computers in your home. Once configured, LaPlug will initiate the backup.
