iPhone Sync/Charge Cable w/ USB Hub Should Come Free With All MacBooks

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  July 12, 2011


Apple’s laptops are slim and sexy, but their svelte figures come at a price, and I’m not just talking about how much they cost. Not only do they have too few USB ports – all of Apple’s laptops only have two USB ports, except for the 17″ MacBook Pro, which has three – the ports are also placed very near to each other, making it very easy to block one while using the other. Which is why I think Apple needs to make this the official design for their iOS cables:

I can hear MacBook and MBP owners going yesssss, yesssss. This is a three-port USB 2.0 hub joined to an iPhone/iPad charge and sync cable made by DITS. As someone who owns both an iPhone and a MacBook, I really really really need this cable. Now.

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be up on DITS’ online shop yet, so I can’t even tell you how much it costs. I really hope Apple turns their cables into something like this; hell even two ports would be welcome.
