These little gadgets are… very practical. I’m surprised this kind of thing isn’t more common. Basically you’ve just got one doodad with room for multiple cards of the same type. So if you need to duplicate or transfer files from one to the other, no middle step, you just plug ‘em both in to the USB thing and boom, you’re copying.
This would be handy for photographers and people who do a lot of hacking with their phones. I constantly have to trade data between MicroSD cards, and while I don’t often have to copy from one SD to another, I’d definitely welcome the ability to do so.
Both these little adapters are from Elecom; you can get the multi-SD reader here and the MicroSD thing… well, I don’t know. I can’t find it for some reason. Oh well, if you’re pumped about it, you’ll find it somehow.
