Update with what's going in Tech world.

Cloud Engines, the company behind Pogoplug, the device that turns any USB hard drive into a network accessible drive, raised $3 million in funding according to an SEC filing. We’ve confirmed the investment with the company with existing investor Foundry Group and others participating in the round.

According to the startup’s CEO, Daniel Putterman, Cloud Engines will use the money to kick start their international plans for retail, specifically in Europe. The company will also expand retail operations in the U.S.

Cloud Engines just last month updated the Popoplug by adding four USB ports, a new address book feature, global search across all the drives attached to a Pogoplug and all the devices associated with a single account, and a host of other improvements.

The Pogoplug comes with a handy iPhone application, that allows users to stream music (or movies) that they don’t have room to store, back up photos as they’re taken, or read docs stored at home.
