Submission + - Pogoplug Becomes Printer Server (deviceguru.com)

__aajbyc7391 writes: Cloud Engines, maker of the Pogoplug, will soon add a new feature to users’ devices free of charge. Once the firmware update is rolled out later this summer, the low cost gadgets will be usable as low-power printer servers, accessible from anywhere via the Internet. Among other options, you'll be able to email files to the Pogoplug.com web service for printing on a designated Pogoplug-attached printer for which you have password-protected access. Initially 'all HP and Epson printers released in 2005 or later' will be supported. Incidentally, the Pogoplug is a tiny, low-power, relatively inexpensive ($129) device that runs a customized Linux-based operating system, and was previously positioned as a device used for remote access of content stored in attached USB media. The device can also be outfitted with a community-supported alternative OS, known as PlugBox Linux and based on Arch Linux.
