Most USB hubs seem to be trying to get smaller or more convenient. Go a totally different route with the Traffic Light USB Hub. The lights show absolutely no status, they are just able to be turned on. For some reason, it is able to record and play back 10 seconds of audio. Has there been a lot of call for that?
Maybe the most useful feature is that you can clip on a note or two. As a tech device it seems pretty useless, but I do like the look of the traffic light.
