    It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s USB Man!

    Here’s USB Man, a little guy that takes the ordinary and mundane task of sharing a USB port and makes all that the aforementioned activity entails ever so slightly less ordinary and mundane. The best part is that “his heart lights up to let you know he’s powered on.” Looking good, USB Man. He costs $27.99 at ThinkGeek.com. Read More

But maybe you are! And if… Read More

    Converge much? Coffee warmer, USB hub, clock

    I’m sitting here staring at my Belkin USB hub that serves as a poor man’s docking station because I’m too cheap to spring for a $180 piece of plastic from Sony that would allow me to whisk my laptop from room to room and I can’t help but feel agitated by the fact that I don’t know what the hell time it is and my coffee isn’t getting any warmer. If only there… Read More
