Filezilla is another one of those must have tools for both your work and home PC.  Even though with everything moving to the cloud I still run into a frequent need to FTP files to different companies and friends.

FileZilla is a free open source FTP application.  So one of the best features is that is is free to use. The interface is also another great feature as it is strait forward and easy to use.  Some of the highlights of the program is that is allows you to download and upload multiple files from several different servers at the same time.  You are also  able to customize the interface to set it up the way you like.   I have added a screenshot below of the user interface along with a link to their site.  Please leave us a comment if you have used FileZilla and like it.

With quicker internet connections becoming available we can do allot of new things.  Pogoplug is an interesting product that allows you to share USB drives on the internet without allot of hassle.  According to the website it takes about sixty seconds to set up and  does not require you to modify any firewall settings.  You can also connect up to four USB drives to the device.  The main thing I like about this product is you only have the initial cost.  There is no ongoing monthly fee that you have to pay in order to use the device.   Check out the links below to find out more information on the Pogoplug.
