Aten introduces a new hybrid USB KVM switch made mostely of cables. The 2 port flexible design easily expands the connection of monitor, PS/2 keyboard and mouse.
What Aten did with their new KVM switch design is insert a remote port for selecting between computers from an extender switch (as pictured).
The video supports 2048 x 1536 and runs on Win 2000, XP, Vista, Linux and FreeBSD. No power supply is needed to run the KVM switch, just plug-n-play.
Keep It Simple Stupid is a motto I like to live by. Knicks USB Cable Holder lives by those rules as well. You could say a distant cousin from the ping-pong net holder the USB cable holder simply keeps that USB cable from hitting the ground.
Simply clip the cable holder to the side of your desk and always have that cable ready for the next connection. Forget about scrapping around the ground from those half dozen cables for the one you need. At just $11 it could save time, your back and reduce your blood pressure.
Two sizes are available to accommodate different width of tables. A 1 inch and 1.75 inch. Where is the bulk holder model?

Computer cables are the most over looked piece of technology on any computer system. Too often a cheap cable or a poorly made socket is the cause of many late nights or critical problems at urgent moments. You should never short change yourself and save a few dollars between a cheap cable and higher end cable. Today GetUSB looks at Tendon USB cables.
Tendon makes a full line of USB cables, DVI cables, HDMI cables and host of other cable products.
Today we are looking at the 15 foot USB-A to USB-A cable which is ideal for scanners, printers, external hard drives and USB hubs. Tendon also sent a variety of other USB cables, all of which are made using the same technique, materials and craftsmanship.
IOGear is set to release their upgraded USB Travel Kit which includes USB mouse and four port hub. The biggest improvement IOGear made was the VCSEL technology to their optical mouse. The Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser enables the mouse to work on any surface – including glass. Heck I can’t get my mouse to work on white paper so there is definitely value there. With a maximum of 1600dpi this means increased accuracy and decreased hand movement.
The 4 port USB hub is slim on design as this is a “traveling USB kit” so that added ports help out for limited laptop USB connectivity. I’d like to see a re-charger interface somewhere before calling this an ultimate USB travel kit.
The GME226 IOGear USB Travel Kit will be available soon, but their older version GKC431 is currently available although without the VCSEL technology.
You bought a new computer with Vista installed and now you need to migrate your data from the old PC to the new Vista PC.Â To minimize any problems you can use the Vista USB transfer cable or migration cable from Belkin to help in the process.
So what do you need? Not much, a couple USB ports (obviously one on each computer) and that’s about it…Oh and Vista on one machine and XP on the other. Have an OS older then XP well then you are SOL. The Belkin migration kit will easily transfer your settings, email, photo’s, music, video – basically anything you have in Local Settings. Save yourself the hassle of cross-over cables, network connections or burning CDs/DVDs and use the Vista USB migration kit from Belkin.
Ever need to leverage the plug-n-play ease of USB with extended coverage that current USB cables can’t handle? Well, the folks at Icron figured things out and developed something called ExtremeUSB Technology allowing you to span up to 1.2 miles away.
