USB hub/tape dispenser
Desk space comes at a premium in many offices; Earth Trek's answer is the 21-802, a stylish tape dispenser which doubles as a four-port USB hub. As with conventional USB 2.0 hubs, it supports transfer rates up to 480Mbps, and requires either Windows 98 or Mac OS 8.6. The three ports on the end can be rotated 180 degrees. It comes in blue, gray, white and "rainbow" colors, and is also sold in a smaller version for less sizable tape rolls. While the 802 should already be on the market, ordering one online may be difficult, as Earth Trek only directly sells to retailers.
