Well, I don't have such rock because I didn't know they existed, but now that I know, I want to get one. ;d

Well, this is... interesting, is it used a a USB hub? what does it do? I doubt it just plugs up one of your USB ports, specially since it has a legitimate USB port, is it like a USB hub? a Bluetooth/ WiFi transceiver? Is it a USB Flash Drive? I don't get it.

It literally does absolutely nothing. I had 3 back in 2006 and I loved them so much.

That is the weirdest peripheral I have ever seen :shock: Shame it had no use though. Then again, I can't image many uses for USB in a rock.
