Free 30 GB For Life Pogoplug

Found a cool free thing

Update 4/12/2018

Cloud backups can be a life saver, but it can also be a pain. I mentioned below that I'd been happy with Crashplan. That was true, but they decided that it was better for their business model to go fully into the corporate space. As I'm not part of that space, I ended up in a search for a new service. Backblaze ended up being the right solution for me, but if you have found yourself in a similar situation, the guys at Cloudwards have put together a fairly comprehensive list of options.

Wandering around the Web the other day I stumbled across a link pointing to 30 GB cloud storage for life. I like free storage, so I followed the link. Turns out that Pogoplug will let you sign up for a free account for
cloud storage, backups (computers, phones, whatever), and it's good for life. Neato. It's not all that much when you consider the 100 GB that Microsoft and Google are handing out, but then again, those two are limited term accounts. 
They've got more compelling services, as well, personal NAS (I may actually end up being interested in this), larger backup services (I'm actually very happy with Crashplan), and some other capabilities that may be worth checking in to.
