The Hub for your tangle trouble

the-hub.png

The great irony of our wireless devices is that they aren't totally wireless. Glance over at where you charge your peripherals. Yikes! Does it look like the wall threw up? Yeah, us too. There's a burgeoning market to help us get control of wire tangles, and while we've seen some simple, tidy, and pragmatic organizers, nothing beats designer Ora-Ito's Hub.

At first glance, The Hub looks like an elegant piece of modern desk art, which it is, but it's also a hi-tech organizer. The Hub's globe-shaped base is host to 4USB ports and 2 Firewire ports, so you can connect up to six devices simultaneously. The eight delightful flexible tentacle-like extensions that protrude from the top are actually cables (5 USB 2.0 and 3 FireWire 400). If you don't have eight devices to plug in, you can use the USB fan, USB light, a USB extension cable, an AC adapter and a FireWire 400 extension cable that are all included.

Both beauty and brilliance define this must-have find!

Price: $90 at Aplusrstore.com
