If you live in a PC/Mac home, IOGear’s Auto Sharing Switch allows two of them to share one USB device or printer. The LED lets you know which computer has the access and by sending a printing task, the switch automatically changes it for you. Because it is bus powered, the GUB211 needs no external power supply. The USB 1.1/2.0 device is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista 32-/64-bit and Mac OS X 10.3.9 or greater and is available for $27.95.

Despite the weird word association photo, Excalibur’s Phantom Chess seems intriguing. Not only will it set up the pieces, its electro-magnetic system moves your men and those of your computerized opponent. Taken pieces are taken to the edge of the board. Add some battle sounds or keep track of the time on its LCD display. The game has 136 levels, 120 for play and 16 for analysis. It will even let you take back your last move, several of them, or the entire game. You can also switch sides or replay a game to check your mistakes. Our favorite part? The “Are you sure?” mode. Phantom Chess can run on AC or 6 C batteries and carries a MSRP of £155 (~$226.00.)
