A new USB hub by the name araHub has been introduced to the public. This USB hub wishes to be "the worlds best, most beautiful USB 3 hub," aiming to do so with a look that replicates that of the Apple suite of notebooks and desktop computers.
Today we're taking a look at an utterly simple yet near-perfectly designed little accessory made by Satechi for the Apple line of desktop and notebook computers. This is the Satechi Premium 4 Port Aluminum USB Hub, and it does exactly what it says it will do. It's made of aluminum, works with USB 2.0 speeds (no faster, no slower than the USB ports we've already got on our MacBook Pro, and matches the quality and the feel of the MacBook line almost right on point.
Manufacturers at Satechi have what the world has wanted for years and never knew it: a 12 Port USB hub, complete with power adapter and 2 control switches: all your smartphones plugged into one single strip. I suppose you're wondering why you don't just plug all your devices into the power strip you've got sitting here already. I'll tell you why: that power strip needs to be used for all of your laptops, of course! Here what you've got instead is a device which can both power your devices and feed data in and out of your computer - all at the same time!
With most people having regular access to more than one computer, especially with the growing popularity of netbooks, we're all for anything that lets you easily share files. USB file transfer cables are nothing new (if still under-rated) so Hawking Technologies have gone one step further with their Easy-Link Data Sharing Hub by adding a three-port USB hub to the middle.
If you've ever lamented the absence of USB ports on your netbook, then here's the obvious solution: details of Cambrionix's second-generation USB Hub have emerged, and as 49 port interfaces go it's not too shabby. Intended for quality assurance testing, large-scale USB network-attached storage and heavy duty image replication, each port gets 500mA of power and there's a single USB connection to the host computer.
I'm a sucker for cute little office gadgets. They're often cheap and supremely cheesy, but I just can't help myself. Take this Turtle USB 2.0 Hub, for instance. Sure, it's a pretty standard USB hub on one hand, but on the other, it's a cute little turtle. I mean, come on. Who can resist that?
MvixUSA is bringing the increasingly popular multimedia hub out from your living room to serve the business class digital signage. The DS-100 works via a combination of a DLNA-complaint HD media player and a supplied PC-based control portal. It supports HD media playbacks from videos, music to images via networked devices or storages such as DLNA server/player, UPnP server, a built-in Flash storage of 16GB, an external USB hdd, wirelessly or though a LAN.
Though a single USB 2.0 cable length is limited to 5 meter or 16 feet, one could use a long chain of cables and hubs to reach a maximum usable distance of 25 meter or 82 feet. If you need connection longer than that, you can try a USB extender over Cat5 gadget. We’ve seen the Superbooster reached 150-feet, but slighter limited due to its wall plate mounting; here’s more from Tripp Lite with similar rating but are standalone hubs.
