The My.PogoPlug.com site for Pogoplug users allows HTML 5 streaming of MP3 files from your home collection. IOS4 allows for programs to run in the background – including Safari. This means you can stream your audio collection, over 3G to your iPhone – all in the background. This video explains everything. I love my Pogoplug.
I figured out something very cool today that works on my current iPhone 3GS and my Pogoplug.
As you can see in this video, I’ve got my iPhone running IOS 4 streaming music from home using my Pogoplug. Yes, I know we can do that with Pandora, but sometimes I like listening to my own music.
What’s even cooler (watch until the end of the video), the music controls in IOS 4 – which you normally use to control the iPod player – can control the music on your Pogoplug.
P.p.s., I wrote this article on 6/23/2010. On that day, Woot was having a sale on a Pogoplug device that made the thing only $20. If you can get in on that deal, do so.
