Dr. Bott, a manufacturer and distributor of Mac peripherals, is shipping its new T3Hub, an ultra-portable, “semi-self-powered,” three-port USB hub that weighs less than an ounce and requires no external power supply. The hub is available in three colors; titanium for the Titanium PowerBook G4, ice for the 2001 iBook 2001, and translucent graphite for, well, for any other Mac.
“No longer do users have to choose between portability and functionality,” Eric Prentice, CEO of Dr. Bott, said in announcing the product. “T3Hub supports USB devices that normally require a powered hub such as keyboards, floppy drives, Zip drives and scanners through intelligently allocating power where it is needed.”
The hub is now shipping. The cost is US$33.95 for one or a three-pack (with all three flavors) for $99.95.
