One reader, 55 cards

Brando skips dumb products and makes a useful one

Brando

Brando is a company that makes some decidedly goofy gadgets (who doesn't?) but it also has figured out a decidedly practical strategy: making all-in-one technologies.

We're not talking about grotesque mutations but useful devices such as a single dock for iPods, PSPs and cell phones. That seems to have been the driving philosophy behind the "55-in-1 card reader," which I4U News says will work with all manner of storage cards, including "SDHC / SDHC 2.0 cards, MicroSD/T-Flash, miniSD, Memory Stick Micro (M2)"--all without adapters, for just $28.

This is exciting news, because it means we can finally toss that crate of readers and adapters sitting in our garage. If we can ever find it.
