At this time of year, we should probably refer to the USB Mouse Hub as a ‘stocking filler’. But unlike most of the disposable plastic you’ll receive this Christmas, it’s actually quite a useful bit of technology.
First off, it’s an optical USB mouse, size at just 7.6 x 3.8 x 2.5cm and weighing just 57g, good for use with both PC and Mac. In addition, the mouse has a built-in MIC input (located at the top of the mouse), allowing you to use Skype on your notebook more freely. And finally, there’s a two USB hub on the retractable USB cable – and you can never have enough of those.
So unlike that novelty festive tie, this is a useful gift – and well-priced too at £12.95.
