The La Cie Huby. Props to the Frenchmen for bringing a genuine bit of style to a muchly boring genre. The result? A non geeky design triumph that wouldn’t look out of place in your trophy cabinet. The device incorporates 4 x USB 2.0 ports and 2 x Firewire ports and comes complete with a passel of cables and attachments. Neat. $79.99.
