The new IOGEAR 4-Port USB Sharing Station looks like an easy way for multiple users to share USB devices (printers, external hard drives, MP3 Players, flash drives, USB speakers, cameras, scanners and more) wirelessly with both Windows and Mac OS X computers in your home or office. One idea for using the Share Station would be to create a low-cost security system by connecting a webcam to the share station in an area where monitoring is needed. The only down side to this product is that it doesn’t support USB 3.0 devices yet. However, it does support High-Speed USB 2.0 and is backward compatible with USB 1.1 devices if you’re still in the dark age. The Sharing Station is available now for $99.95
