It's the curse of the gadget hound -- you have an iPod, a DSLR, a Treo and a digital video camera. But no central place for connecting everything. You end up storing music on your hard drive, and your digital videos on an expansion hard drive. You also send some photos directly to the printer. Still you need to hook everything up to work together.
Consider a hub with a built-in digital storage card reader. You can purchase a hub with six USB ports and a 12-in-1 card reader. This will allow you to pop in a mini-SD card from the Treo, a CF or SD card from your camera, etc., and then direct them all to your peripherals through the USB connections.
