Plugging a USB drive into a port on the front of a desktop is convenient, but you’re also one knee-bump away from breaking the thing. Avoid the problem by using a flexible USB adaptor or extension cord to prevent damage.
The SNES controller is one of my favourite console controllers. Unfortunately, the proprietary connector makes it difficult to use with newer devices. Thanks to the Teensy USB dev board, you can get the best of both worlds: a great and sturdy game controller and USB connectivity so you can use it with modern consoles or with your PC.
Travelling with lots of gadgets doesn’t mean you have to take heaps of chargers and poorly organised cables — you only need one. Just take the right USB hub and a clever organisation sleeve, and you can have a seven-port travel charger that keeps everything organised, packs easily and charges any USB-based gadget quickly.
