Pogoplug combined with an external HDD behaves like a server and a NAS (Network-attached storage).

Pogoplug just finished manufacturing the first batch and they're available now for $79 if you order before March 31st. $99 after then.

The device plugs into a power outlet and connects to your router. You then connect your USB 2.0 external hard drive to the device and then you can access your HDD files from any browser (Windows),Finder (Mac), or iPhone anywhere in the world. It does all this by cramming a computer brain in with the power brick.

Not a pretty design, but cheap and useful.

Read the Engadget review.
