Pogoplug introduces new feature to transfer, back up and restore device content
Today Pogoplug, an online storage service, announced two new features to its unlimited cloud storage -- Phone Swap, and free, unlimited storage for 30 days. Phone Swap is a back-up, restore and migration tool that aims to simplify the process of upgrading a phone, changing carriers, and other situations that requires large migrations of information. The company's new 30-day free unlimited cloud storage offer enables Phone Swap usage, even if the user does not eventually subscribe to Pogoplug. Following the 30-day period, Pogoplug offers its storage service for $50 per year, and is compatible with iOS, Android, Mac and Windows.
Concepter announces new Lunecase Eclipse, doubles crowdfunding goal
Concepter has announced an additional electromagnetic case option to its Kickstarter campaign for the Lunecase. Raising $116,000 and counting since its campaign began eight days ago, the Lunecase features illuminated notification icons on the back of the phone for incoming calls or SMS messages without the use of batteries, or any direct connection with the phone. Announced as a part of Concepter's new stretch goal, the Lunecase Eclipse functions on the same basic premise, only instead of displaying LED icons, on the back of the covered phone is a luminous ring around the Apple logo that lights up as a notification. The Lunecase Eclipse pledges start at $35 for iPhone 5, 5s or 5c, with the anticipated delivery on the project being August.
