It seemed like a good idea - the USB tape dispenser

Everyone needs extra USB ports, right? I know that I'm always searching for a free port, and though many companies have great USB hubs, I just really don't need anything extra on my desk. Well, I've found a new hub that combines something that is commonly found on desks.

Earth-Trek thought it would be a great idea to turn a tape dispenser into a USB hub. Yes, they're serious. I'm sure it works just fine, but I'm not sure I'd want one. Aside from the fact that I don't use a lot of tape, this thing looks huge, and ugly. They do come in a variety of sizes and colors, none of which are very appealing.

It seems like every day someone has a great new idea on what they can turn into a USB hub. What next, a mouse that is also a hub?
