Here's yet another USB device to clutter up your desktop, but this one from Evergreen attempts to consolidate numerous functions into its whimsical egg-shaped design. It's a pair of speakers, a card reader and a USB 2.0 hub, giving you not-exactly-rocking tunes with 2 watts per channel, a card reader that can handle SD, CompactFlash and Media Stick, and then a USB hub with two ports.

Doesn't a product need to have more than two USB ports to be called a "hub?" Perhaps it should be called a "twofer." Anyway, the USB Egg is available in Japan, and there's no word whether we'll see it stateside. Looks like fun if you're obsessed with eggs or perhaps concerned about fertility.
