Dock Connector-USB Hub Hybrid Mitigates the MacBook's Biggest Shortcoming

All MacBooks ever made share two traits: thin, attractive design and a shortage of USB ports. Until now, the only solution was using a fat, ugly USB hub. With this cable-hub-hybrid, you can have your ports and thinness too.

The otherwise normal looking dock connector cable from DITS has an inline three port USB hub. That means no longer having to choose between syncing your iPhone, using a mouse, and exercising your USB humping dog—even if you have the single-USB port MacBook Air.

Unfortunately, it has yet to appear in DITS' online store and there's no word on pricing or availability. In the meantime, I would be more than okay with Apple copying the design for themselves. [DITSblog via Technobob]
