This is a pretty cool little device or ad on. I could definitely see the point as a lot of things are coming with a direct connect US charging attachment. There are other things as mentioned in the article that would be cool as well. For $7.99 I could think of 3 uses off the top of my head.
I have a USB Flash drive on my keychain from 5 years ago, and most of those were spent without a cover...still works fine.
Cute, but largely pointless. :)
I'd spend $7.99 to protect my male end!
Oh! Of a USB cable? Well... OK, sure.
(Seriously, I'll pick up a set. I do have Brother TZ labels on all my cables, and that's one of the treasons my computer build is going so slowly... that front panel cable wad is a mess. For the externals, though, these look great if you're just a little bit silly. But why an egg?)

i'm gonna have to agree with gibbersome, this is pretty much pointless at least for me lol
Why an egg? To hatch some new ideas! Hahahah right? no? lol

Lol Clem, nice double entendre!
@acarzt Thanks for the support! :)
No offense to any guys that like these, but seems to me they'd be most appealing to kids and girls.
I think you are being too kind by including male kids in that group. :P
I should show this to my gf i'm sure she'll love them lol
She's 23 and has stacks of hello kitty journals she uses at her college classes lol She means serious business lol
Yeah, same here. My gf still sleep with her baby blanket...
File these caps under: Her-ipherals.
This product does look as if it would appeal more to the Ladies of the office.
One more cute little distraction to keep them off task...
(Ladies don't take offense! Around my current job, and most places I have worked, the women handle the cutesy end of office relationships, while the guys rather get the job done and go to the pub. Though there are those guys who like to gossip, Maybe they would like this product too...)
If you gave these things to me, I'd give them away to someone else,....maybe my granddaughter.
I wouldn't even consider spending CASH on them.
And welcome to HotHardware.com Enigma,.............
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
lol, yea i'd give them to my gf, and if she didn't want them, i'd give them to my neice.
What if your niece did not like them acarzt
Hmmm....I like the occasional gossip (tech gossip that is)...and I don't go to pubs, but these still don't appeal to me.
@rapid1 Good question, lol.
@recoveringknowitall: No offense taken. I'm in touch with my childlike side and my feminine side.
Lol, gone over the dark side, have you?
