So, this is cute (there, I said it) and practical, for the most part. This is a petite USB powered speaker system that also has an USB hub integrated into one tidy package. This may be a little underpowered for you desktop owners, but it could fit nicely along any laptop. Unfortunately the USB hub specs are a little fuzzy. Here is what it says: "4-port USB hub, revision 1.1 and compatible with 2.0." What the hell does that mean? Is it USB 2.0 or 1.1? USB confusions aside, this does seem pretty nice for a laptop setup. It goes for 24.99 or around US$44.
