Wireless USB hub for peace of mind

Belkin ships device that doesn't need PC cable

After extensive therapy, we've been able to admit publicly that we have issues with exposed wires, cords and cables . And we're happy to say that, with the help of some sympathetic manufacturers, we hope to make significant progress in the new year.

Belkin

Belkin may be one of those companies, if the "cable-free USB hub" it's about to ship is worthwhile. Not only does the $200 hub work without a cable to the computer but, according to Engadget, Belkin also claims connection speeds of up to 480 mbps as far as 30 feet away. That might be enough to make us forget about all the cords stuffed behind the TV . Almost, anyway.
