another benefit of ownCloud is that it supports the remoteStorage
protocol for storing cross-origin data from html5 web apps, and also
it has quite an end-user friendly user interface out of the box.

in fact if you integrate pagekite into ownCloud and put it on a plug
server, you're already quite close to something you could sell in a
shop and that would pass the "non-techies can use it" test. At least
as a media drive, aimed at html5 web apps and (smartphone) browser.
You could then add more features after you have a minimal viable
product out on the shelves. Would a lamp stack be OK on a plug server,
or is that already too resource-heavy?

My 2ct,
