Calculator With USB Hub Just Blows My Mind

Calculator Hub

By Luke Anderson

Is it just me, or are people turning everything into USB devices? Seriously, who needs a calculator that is also a USB hub? Better yet, who needs a basic calculator such as this sitting next to their keyboard and mouse. Honestly I thought that the calculator built into Windows or OSX coupled with the numberpad on your keyboard was more than enough to take care of things. Not only is this gadget all but useless, it seems a bit overpriced at $23.99.

    I would say it’s a lot overpriced, seeing as it’s basically useless. And wtf, pink?!

    If it could also function as a keypad for the computer, that would be useful, but it seems that it just draws power from USB and calculates locally. Then again, at least it is a 4 port hub, but only USB 1.1, not 2.0.

    Despite that it is shown in pink, the website says it is available in Purple, White, and Green. Yes, something went wrong between idea and store with this one. It isn’t useless, but it could easily have been truly useful.
