Belkin Switch-to-Mac cable

Belkin on Wednesday announced the release of its Switch-to-Mac Cable, which automatically transfers files from a PC to a Mac. The product's embedded Migration Assistant moves users' music, movies, photos and Internet favorites and preferences on its own, not even requiring users to drag-and-drop the required files. The cable uses a USB 2.0 connection to transfer files and settings from default PC folders and applications to the respective Mac locations before providing a log of its operations.

The Switch-to-PC is compatible with Windows XP or Vista operating systems, as well as Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5. It is now available in the US for approximately $50, with sales in Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia starting in February of 2009.

    Absolutely brilliant

    for people who are newbies or just technically uncomfortable with the whole process. This is a very creative product. Well done, Belkin.

    then what?

    Once you get all your stuff over what do you do with this Belkin thing? Do you rent it out, put it on Ebay, seal the box back up and try and get a refund?

    Does the world need another one off one trick pony, Belkin?
