Colorful USB Star Hub Adapts to Your Workspace

There are plenty of unique looking hubs on the market, but there is something about this colorful USB Star Hub that sets it apart. And the fact that each hub can rotate 180° to adapt to your work environment is definitely a plus. The device is USB 2.0 compatible and the product site claims that it has a low power consumption, but it is only available for Windows 98/98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista, which is a little bit of a turnoff. Still, you can pick one up for only $12(BDT 840), so there really isn't much to complain about.

Probable look of Nokia N96

GSMhelpdesk.nl has some renders of what could possibly be (but probably isn't) the Nokia N96. These renders show a 3.2-inch, 16 million color touchscreen display, a dual-sliding QWERTY keyboard, and a one-way sliding dialpad keyboard. There's also a 6-megapixel camera on board, with 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth 2.0. What's really cool about this rendering is the dual-sliding keyboardthe major thing that's missing from the current Nokia N95 models.

A concept MP3 walkman
for the Ladies

Still, it probably won't matter all that much considering that style is the main focus hereand by the looks of things, Vivienne Tam has its sights set squarely on women. Whether these women will also need to have plenty of disposable income remains to be seen.

Google May Open Internet
File Storage Service

According to the Wall Street Journal, Google is planning to give free online disk storage beyond the gigabytes they already allocate for GMail, Picasa or Google Apps. This space will be able to hold any kind of file, although it's not clear how would it be integrated with your desktop, if at all. The storage service, which hasn't been officially confirmed yet, will surely be something to look forward to.
