Make the Most of Your Desk Grommet

Belkin USB desk grommet
Let me help Belkin help you with their latest product announcement the In-Desk Grommet USB Hub and In-Desk Grommet iPod Dock Station. Every now and again, a real great idea comes along and I believe this is one of them. What I like about this solution are the side spaced so you can still fit your other cables, like monitor and keyboard connections down through the desk grommet.

At $39 the Belkin In-Desk USB iPod dock station and hub are a fair price. Belkin also has two other “flat” models available. Grommet size solutions are standard 2 inch and 3 inch holes. I was going to click the Buy Now button, but Belkin is just prepping the market, nothing is available just yet. Continue Reading

Free Style USB Optical Mouse Strapped to Your Finger

I’m a little skeptical about the USB optical finger mouse. The potential is there, but I see some issues with the strap working loose and thus becoming more of a nuisances then asset. None the less, the optical finger mouse is worth a closer look.
