Plug: the brain of your devices

Trying really hard not to turn the ‘ol site here into Phil Links Kickstarter Projects All Day but I can’t help myself with this one. Plug is a little USB dongle that plugs into your network and shares content across all of your devices, sort of like having a personal Dropbox for your house.
