Kanex DualRole Finally Gives Your MacBook More USB 3.0 Ports
The new DualRole is a USB 3.0 hub + Gigabit Ethernet adapter in one. It's a small, pocket-friendly solution that plugs into a single USB 3.0 port on a Mac laptop, and allows three USB 3.0 products to join the fun as well as a single Ethernet port. Naturally, this is most useful for the MacBook Air line and newer machines that have done away with the Ethernet plug in favor of Wi-Fi only. It's bus-powered as well, so no external AC adapter will be necessary. For $69, it's a pretty solid investment if you're constantly swapping things out of your MBP's two USB sockets.
