If you worship Homer Simpson—and in particular his questionable work ethic—check out this fun USB hub. Not only can you plug 4 USB
peripherals in it, just press the button and Homey spins around in his chair yelling “Woo Hoo!”. Classic! A must-have for the Homer fanatic. The base is 4” in diameter, and the hub is 5.5” tall. We love it, but think it’s a little pricey at $48 USD. But that probably won’t matter to the most hardcore “Simpsons” fans.

No matter how you use or wear it, leather is always a hallmark of quality and distinction, which is why we love this very sophisticated-looking mouse and USB hub, from Earth Trek. The mouse is the two-button style, with handy scroll wheel. The four-port USB hub looks exactly like the mouse, sans buttons and wheel. We wanted to suggest either one as a great Father’s Day gift, but strangely, pricing and availability could not be found on the Earth Trek website, which is based in Hong Kong. We still hope these elegant accessories make their way to US shores soon…
