I’m not sure how I feel about this. While an anywhere-stickable USB hub is a cool idea, it would have to be a pretty serious magnet to withstand all the pushing and tugging that goes along with hubs. And then you’ve got a serious magnet stuck to the side of your computer. I realize we’re not running tape backups and there’s probably plenty of shielding for vulnerable components, but it just seems a little like keeping your pet wolf in the henhouse. Or feel free to supply your own ominous simile. It’s only $12, though, and of course there are magnetic things other than your computer case to stick the thing to. Check it out.
