Shut Up and Take My Money: USB Toaster Hub and Toast Flash Drives

By on May 14, 2013

shut_up_and_take_my_moneyEasily one of the cutest ways to dress up an ugly USB hub on your desk at home or in your cubicle, this Smoko USB hub has been designed to look like a four-slice toaster.

In addition to using the hub to charge your mobile devices and connect computer peripherals to your system, the USB toaster hub can be purchased with matching toast-shaped USB thumb drives.

Each piece of toast has a little face and personality modeled after buttered toast, rye bread, burnt toast and potato bread. The creator has even named the four drives Butta, Ry Ry, Crisp and Tato.

Each drive has 4GB of space; not particularly impressive compared to other drives on the market. However, it can be ideal for copying and lending out files to co-workers, specifically because they will be more likely to return the drive in order to keep it with the set.

If you were hoping for USB 3.0, I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you. All four slots on the USB toaster hub are limited to USB 2.0 with speeds up to 480mbps. However, the hub also has an SD card slot.  That could be ideal for dumping pictures onto your computer rather than connecting your digital camera using a USB cable.
