USB cable prints to parallel printers and allows file-sharing

Need to print to a printer with a parallel interface? Need to transfer files between a laptop that has only USB ports and an older PC that has only a parallel port?

Keyspan announced on Aug. 17 its new USB Parallel Transfer Cable, which solves both of these problems. The device, which lists for only $29 USD, includes software that enables file-sharing between one computer with a USB port and another with a parallel port. With this cable in your laptop’s USB port, you can also connect to a second printer using your parallel port, if you have one, or using a second USB port and cable. Pretty convenient. Prices: U.S. / U.K.
