We recently became aware of hardware-related problems that uniquely affect the newly released Pogoplug Video product. We now have two cases of smoke (and potentially flame) issuing from the unit. We don’t know how common this problem could be, but we’re not taking any chances. As a result, our company is undertaking an immediate worldwide recall of the product. The new Pogoplug Video product adds specialized hardware (an advanced processing chip that can consume lots of power if there is a system malfunction) to process video files in real-time. As an extra precaution, our manufacturer added a fan to the unit, and the system passed all of the certification tests necessary for us to bring it to market. It now appears that there is the possibility of overheating that can cause the problematic situations.
Well at least they unlike others will take immediate action. Don't want to hear in the news a house catching fire... then spreading blocks...
Good job Cloud engines for issuing a recall immediately. I hope they get their problems squared away because these are the types of companies that I like to see succeed.
