The last Brando product to grace these pages - their LCD Bluetooth Vibrating Bracelet - fell more than a little short of impressing us. Today it's back to basics with a USB cable, but it's actually a cable with a neat in-line difference: Brando have taken a standard USB to miniUSB cable and added an SD card reader.
