You may as well get yourself a USB Hub, and this particular 7 Port USB 2.0 Powered Hub from Newer Technology, makers of the Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet.
There is not much to say about this, other than it connect six desktop devices like thumb drives, scanners, printers, and the like. Of course, since most of us have mobile devices that take up USB ports, so the more USB ports the better! You can even add additional hubs to support up to 127 USB devices.
Now, if you are looking for this kind of action for your computer, head over to the Newer Technology website and lay down about $34.95 for it.
