More USB Support from Keyspan


Keyspan has announced the expansion of its USB product line with the addition of a USB hub and a USB serial adapter. USB hubs enable iMac users to attach more USB devices to their iMacs – although the iMac has two USB ports, one must be used by the keyboard and mouse, and daisy-chaining too many USB devices can cause problem. The Keyspan USB hub will provide four additional USB ports for a list price of $69 in late September of 1998. Keyspan’s USB serial adapter, which is scheduled to ship in October of 1998 for a list price of $79, makes it possible for iMac users to connect serial devices like graphics tablets, PalmPilots, and some printers.
