Moshi Cardette: USB hub and Memory Card Reader
UPDATE: If you don’t see pictures with this post, it could be that your firewall blocks proxies like imgred.com, or imgred.com has gone down, or some other similar situation. 🙂 I noticed that this entry didn’t have pictures when I looked at it at work, but then realized that the firewall was blocking imgred.com. So I’m not being hypocritical by ranting about websites not including product pictures when they post info about a new product!
Okay, I’m going to begin this little post with a rant. Why do websites post news about a product without a picture of it? (Yes, I may have been guilty of this in the past, but that’s not the point. *smirk*) I just got a newsletter from Macworld Weekly extolling the virtues of the Moshi Cardette USB hub/card reader, yet didn’t have a picture of it. Sometimes I understand because there aren’t any press photos available, but when the article specifically mentions something about its appearance or size, I sure would like a picture to illustrate that. And in this case, there wasn’t a dearth of pictures for the product online. What was even worse was that the newsletter didn’t even have a product link!
Google is my friend, so I looked it up, and clicked on a link for a story on MacNN about this product, and they didn’t have a picture, either! But they had a link to Moshi’s site, so I went there in search of the product.
It actually looks pretty nice. It’s a cute, designer card reader that adds an extra USB port for your disposal. It comes in black and white, but is a bit pricey at around $35 – $40. However, like for a lot of Apple products some people, including me, will pay a little more for something that looks a bit nicer.
