    Elecom multi-card reader

    Do all the varying memory cards require you to travel with tons of readers and cables? Not every USB card reader supports all the cards you have either, right? I feel your pain and so does Elecom, which is why they’ve introduced the MR-C12 USB 2.0 card reader. It comes in a tidy package with a flipup lid that stores your SDHC, SD, MMC, xD, and Memory Stick MagicGate/Pro/Duo cards. It starts… Read More

It’s a simple enough piece of machinery, it seems only logical that it be… Read More

  • Tiny 3-Port USB Hub: Small, Slick

    The more gear we get, the more USB ports we need to support them. In a day when most computers sport four or fewer ports of the Universal Serial Bus-type, a good USB hub is a must. We find ourselves liking this neat little critter from the geniuses over at Elecom in Japan we found on EverythingUSB. It transforms your measly one USB port into 3, with the top and bottom ports angled so that your… Read More
