It's Gold, Solid Gold Baby: Thanko Gold Ingot USB Hub

It's Gold, Solid Gold Baby: Thanko Gold Ingot USB Hub

This Thanko 2007 heavy-duty "Gold Ingot" hub makes my blood crawl, but something tells me it would be a hit with Mike Myers' Goldmember and the office Paris Hilton wannabe.

If you love goooollllddd and don't get distracted by its tacky, shiny outside, you'll be pleased to learn the inside features 8 USB 2.0 ports for faster and better connections to PC or Mac and lights up when the USB is connected to the hub. It's not actually solid gold (no doy!), but it's certainly bright enough to leave an impression.

The hub, $79, adopts 2 power sources: USB and AC adapter. Available in gold. It's not real gold obviously, but chances are everyone will be so dumbstruck its authenticity will never come up.

Yeah this is a little too much. What next? Diamond covered USB? If anyone takes that idea I get 90% of the cut!!

That's crazy expensive. You can get a 7 hub adaptor on Amazon for half that.
