Thanko Dips USB Hub in Gold

Thanko, who's known for their extensive line of heated gadgets, has gone the luxury route and dipped a USB hub in gold. Gold paint, that is. The 9-port hub (8 downstream/1 upstream) weighs a hefty 5.5 pounds and comes with its own power input so you can pretty much connect anything to it. It's a little too gaudy for our tastes, but it might make for a nice office weapon thanks to its chunky weight. It's selling for roughly $50.
