The USB Hub and Thermometer

For all those times when you're plugging in USB devices and suddenly wonder what the indoor temperature is, Brando's USB Rota Rota Hub has you covered. It comes with three USB ports, each of which you can rotate 90 degrees, plus slots for SD, SDHC, Memory Stick Duo, MicroSD, and M2.

The thermometers are electric rather than mercury-based, so you won't be tossing hazardous waste when you throw this worthless gadget out.
