USB cords and accessories are kinda ugly, amirite? The least you can do is round them all up and plug all your peripherals and desktop accessories into something cute, stylish, or eye-catching. Here are a few you might enjoy. You're welcome.
Since the device is produced by Quirky's crowd-sourced design program, it's currently only in production and not available immediately. But, buyers can check back often for updates on its manufacture, distribution, and when you can expect to receive it.
What do you think? Are you similarly skeeved or do you like it?
The USB hub comes in three colors — blue, white, and traditional duck yellow — and is a quirky addition to my list of unique USB hubs. And at only $10, it's an affordable and useful desk accessory. Could you rock it?
A good USB hub is essential when you're as into gadgets as I am — no matter what I'm doing, it never seems like there are enough USB plugs on my computer.I'm a fan of the USB Hub Snake ($18) because it's so different and artsy. It has four USB ports and plugs into your computer with a long cable, so it's easily transformable into any shape you need.
Available in four bright colors (yellow, red, black, and blue) the hubs are four inches long and have ports for up to four USB cables or devices.
It's definitely been a Lego-overload recently, but I have to admit, I'm a fan of this product, too. What do you think?

I know for some of you, today might not feel like Spring. The weather around the country has been harsh, and if you're begging for the sun to peek out from behind the clouds, there are some things you can buy to make it feel a little more Spring-like all year round. Sure, it's not the same as catching some rays in the park, but at least these things may help you keep a smile on your face.
Can I now start saying that Spring has sprung? With the sun finally showing its face in my neck of the woods, it certainly feels that way. Make like the flowers are blooming on the inside as well as outside with this USB Tulip Hub ($22).
With four separate USB ports, this Tulip Hub is as useful as it is fun and happy.
However, I realize that though I may be going for exuberant and girlie due to the sun coming 'round, other people may find this, well, a bit too loud for an office area.
