49 Port USB 2.0 Hub hits the market

A place for all those old USB keys

So what do you get the Geek who has everything? Normally I would say a date with a real girl but barring that I would say that a 49 port USB hub would about cover it.


Yes, you read right. There actually is a USB hub with a full 49 ports on it. The device is being made by Cambrionix and is selling under the inspired name of "49 Port Professional USB Hub." And can be picked up for around $650 US dollars.


It is actually being marketed as a development and testing hub (which makes sense really) and appears to be a useful tool for mass testing of USB flash drives.


For the consumer or super geek this is perfect for all those USB keys you might have laying around. You will need a full ATX-2 Power supply to make everything work. But you will be the envy of all the other geeks on your block.
