You have to start from somewhere
I received my Pogoplug today with a hope to dive into the embeded devices world. It’s nice, does not require an additional adapter for the power, is quite affordable (55 pounds in UK Amazon) and does have quite many nice connections like ethernet port, 4 USB ports and also a serial port like I had to find out.
After some hours playing with my new toy, I bricked it. I had a hope that when I break it open I would find some serial interface inside. This was true and there were also other folks with the same problem. So now I have to acquire a proper cable for it…
Let the adventure begin.
