    Hmm in theory i like it.

    But im unclear, one of these is powered right (looks like the orange one in the pics) and the rest are just USB leads with a port on the socket ?

    So the Adapter fits on the USB B end of one of the leads... I like it.

    mmm...i don;t think its practical.

    Having a string of 5 of those hanging off the laptops socket.....just does not sound good to me.

    Too much that can go wrong.

    God yeah like 5 would be asking for trouble but thinking about the X1 well actually 2 of them on one port may be cool if they didnt need power.

    Obviously you couldn't use loads and loads all at once, that would just be silly and well, be unpractical, but I can definitely see this helping out a few people, especially those of us with macbooks!

    Gross, those USB cables aren't even using any protection when they plug into those other cables. Who knows who else plugged into their backside.

    And we all know what causes USB STD's - those damn dirty low capacity flash drives. Those cheap filthy whores.

    Exactly, USB inter-port connection is a sin, if you allow it - what's next?, USB ports trying to plug into the one next to them?, why not allow same port marriage while we're at it.

    :eek:
