Lowered Expectations...

Once something becomes a "mature technology", you begin to take it for granted.

When silicon chips and LCD displays became cheap and common enough, there was no longer any really burning need to spend the money on a Seiko or Casio digital watch if all you needed to know was what time it was; the fifty cent watch from a gumball machine could do that.

Some technologies are more mature than others.

Repeat after me: I will not buy a cheap-ass "powered USB hub".

I've had good luck with Rubbermaid powered USB hubs. It's a two port hub with a built in power outlet, though they offer a four port hub sans outlet as well. I found them by accident at Wallyworld, they put them up front with the office supplies instead of back in electronics with the computer stuff.
