According to Akihabara News, this thing is useless, but I think it
s a good idea. The Magnetic USB hub by Elecom is a four port, USB 2.0 hub running at 480Mbps in high speed mode. The big feature is that the body of the hub itself is magnetic. You have the ability to mount and stick this thing to any metal surface. You can hide it under a desk or the side of a computer case and not worry about knocking it off. [Sorry aluminum-case people, won’t work for you.]

Price set at $28. It is available in silver (pictured above), black, and white. Just imagine how many people are going to erase something due to this thing sticking to say, a floppy, or a hdd.

A graduate of Colgate University, Bruce is one of the elite Henro or pilgrims who have completed the 900 mile 88 Temple Pilgrimage on the island of Shikoku, Japan by means of foot power, a feat (no pun intended.... ok maybe alittle) which is no laughing matter. He not only finished this task with a crippling leg injury but he has attained enlightenment according to the monks on Koyasan. Currently the 23 year old is living in San Antonio where he spends his time working as a Data Analyst but also trying to accomplish his next great challenge, drinking all 200 beers at the Flying Saucer. Having recently married his long time friend from college and seen as nuts for doing so, Bruce relishes his life and hot dogs generously. KANPAI!!
