We’re relying on Babelfish and our own imaginations for this story, but it seems that Japanese gadget site, Thanko, is selling a selection of USB Aqua Hubs. These 4 port USB hubs come with a choice of fish, ducks or frogs floating in or on their own little pond. But if you thought that was special enough in itself you thought wrong, yes siree. Because the Aqua Hubs also work as pen holders (with room for up to two pens) or mobile phone holders. It’s almost more equitement than one person can take. The site points out, quite rightly, that "atmosphere around the lonesome personal computer is softened at a stroke".
