Here’s a fairly future-proof hub for USB-gadget hoarders. Chinavision’s Warp Speed hub has 12 ports, 6 of them USB 3.0 compatible. Unless you’re really an early adopter, I think that’s more than enough.
Any computer user eventually needs a USB hub for one reason or another. It might be that your machine only had a few USB ports and you are out, or you may just need to get some ports further from your computer and a hub and long cable works well for that.
I don’t know if Brando’s cutting back on selling weird gadgets, but it’s good to know that they’re still coming out with cheap and practical ones. This one’s a 3-in-1 device, a 4-port USB hub/charger that can also be used as a solar-powered charger and a flashlight.
The folks at Art Lebedev Studio are having a little April Fools’ fun once again, with funny and just slightly absurd designs with neat concept art. One of their “latest designs” is the Cylindrus, a USB hub shaped like a magician’s top hat and, well, actually that’s all there is to it.
