I mean, why drag down the look of your desk by parking what is essentially a gray plastic box on it? The only problem with hiding your USB hub is that it’s harder to reach when you need to plug in or unplug something. What would you say if you could have a modern, aesthetically pleasing USB hub that you could leave out in the open? And plug into easily? If the idea of such a product makes you smile, you’ve got to check out the LaCie USB and USB/FireWire hubs.

With a sleek and sculptural design that looks great in minimalist office, the LaCie USB hub has a smooth globe-shaped base that blossoms into a spray of flexible USB and/or FireWire extensions, hidden among which is even a fun USB-powered fan! Between its mod good looks and those bendable USB connections, the LaCie hub is not only something you can be proud to display on your desk, it also makes connections fast, easy and organized. And best of all, it will work with any computer, whether you play for the PC or Mac team.

  2. Will I be able to charge my blackberry with this? Even though the blackberry cable is shaped the same way as my digital camera cable, they seem to be different cables

  4. Unfortunately, I don’t have any personal experience with Blackberry phones, so I’ve never tried to charge one using this USB hub. But I did a little research, and as long as the USB connectors on the LaCie hub are compatible with the port on your Blackberry, it looks like you should be in business. The only real way to know for sure if it will work is to verify which kind of USB connector your phone needs, and then see if there’s a match among those that this particular hub comes with.

    The LaCie USB hub comes with the following USB cables:

    - 2 USB 2.0 (type B male – type A male)
    - 2 USB 2.0 (type A male – type B mini male)
    - 4 USB 2.0 (type A male – type A female)

    Hope that helps, and good luck!
