Make use of that hole in your desk

Every now and then you come across something so obvious that you know you should have thought of it first. That's the way I felt when I first saw the new desk grommets that are being made by Belkin.

I know that you're just itching to ask why Belkin is making desk grommets. The answer is simple, they're turning the oft-ignored hole in your desk into a functional device. More precisely, it's being turned into either a USB hub or iPod dock.

These each run $39.99 from Belkin's website. So go get one and quit cluttering up your desk with unnecessary USB hubs.
