Switch Hitter USB Connector

There is a new kid on the block when it comes to USB connectors, it is “The Flipper.”  The concept is so incredibly simply you will laugh when you see it.  The Flipper is a USB connector that will make correct contact with the host USB port regardless of how you insert it.

Granted it is not that hard to figure out which side is up and down…and I will admit [openly] that if you have trouble with that – then you are an idiot.

So if you are having trouble here is a tip:  Seam is the down side, seamless is the up side.

USB side up, side down

So The Flipper will help the idiots who can’t figure heads from tails.

I do say, there was a design flaw in the first place with having an up and down position, it should have been universal and hopefully The Flipper will catch on and thus change USB forever…or at least until USB 3.0 takes over.

USB Transfer Cable For Windows 7

In Feb of 2007 Belkin introduces their USB transfer cable to get from XP to Vista.  Now Belkin has their USB transfer cable to get you from Vista to Windows 7.  From everything we’ve heard and experienced, we expect nothing less than a mad rush for users to get away from Vista and try anything new.

The two-ended USB cable plugs into your old Vista or XP computer as well as the new Windows 7 machine. Then you launch the Easy Transfer application shipping with Windows 7 inside “Start | Programs | Accessories | System Tools”. Once there, you can migrate files, users, bookmarks and emails onto your shiny new rig.

Since many programs might not be Windows 7 compatible, Belkin puts together a list of what those programs are with links to any updates available for the software.  Seems to me that database would be a nightmare in itself, but hey, we’ll drink from the water cooler.

The Belkin USB transfer cable from Vista to Windows 7 retails for $39 – but we found it on sale for $22.  Not much to avoid a headache and make life a bit easier, right?

USB Cable Gets Hitched With SD Technology

The desk drawer to my left is full of card readers, USB sticks, cables etc.  It’s just too much.  Last week Brando sent me an email with their latest idea to reduce the clutter and global waste of all these connection devices.  It was a USB cable with an SD card reader built; in-line.

Take away the fact that it’s ANOTHER cable I will have, the idea of putting connectors in-line a USB cable is brilliant.
