More USB ports, please

[ #28243 ]

My previous laptop had a lot of disadvantages, but at least it had three USB ports. The iBook only has two.

Considering I need one of them to plug the mouse (yes, I use a mouse), that only leaves one left, which means that, of the following, I can only do one at a time:

  - use the Airclick to control iTunes
  - charge (or update) the iPod
  - plug an external disk to make backups
  - plug a USB pen to copy something to someone
  - use Bluetooth (yes, it's external)

  • Thankfully there are now quite a few very tiny USB hubs on the market. For example this one [the-gadgeteer.com] (picked as its the first review that came up on Google).
