Iogear launches first Mac, PC compatible USB hubs


So these might not be for everyone, but Iogear announced a 2-port USB 2.0 printer switch and a 4-port USB “Net ShareStation.” The printer switch allows you to plug in one Mac and one PC into a single printer and it automatically detects which one is sending print jobs. The Net ShareStation allows you to hook up four different doodads via USB and share that amongst your fellow co-workers or home inhabitants. If you plug it into your wireless router than it puts everything over the network wirelessly. Did you get that last part? Wirelessly.

So the printer switch works with both PCs and Macs, but the NSS only seems to work with PCs according to the press release. The former goes for $40 while the latter will retail for $100. Both will be available this month.
