November 26, 2007 There are plenty of products out there that solve the problem of not having enough direct USB or FireWire ports on your computer, but few do it as effectively and with as much style as this Hub from LaCie.

The LaCie USB and FireWire Hub offers four USB 2.0 ports and two FireWire 400 ports, a USB light and USB fan. All of the cables and plugs are swappable and USB and FireWire extension cables are included.

The Hub’s unusual round shape, glossy white polycarbonate finish, and flexible, twistable cables are styled by Ora-Ïto, the company of well-known French designer Ito Morabito. Suitable for Mac or PC, the Hub retails for USD$89.
