    Taking a new approach to old problems




    BEST HARDWARE

    Taking a new approach to old problems

    By Michael Lasky

    Innovation rarely comes as an entirely new product category. Most often, it puts a new and interesting spin on something that already exists. That evolutionary form of innovation applies nicely to these four products. Each adds to our computing experience in useful and unexpected ways.

    The power "strip" is cute, but produces a configuration with cords running in all directions. A donut shaped strip where the cords were directed to the center (and into a hole in the work surface) is something that I would purchases in a minute.

    Thank you for your article.
    I am under the impression that AC-adapter "bricks" are power supplies that look like bricks, with a wire coming out of each end, and only take up one outlet.
    I believe that what you intended to say was "wall warts".

    If you can build a prototype, you might have a patentable idea there. Might be a money-maker. Seriously.

    Wall Bugs is more commonly used, but we all know what's being talked about here.
