    Looks like Apple's legal division got to them. Same thing happened to the iHub. With products like these, once they're on the market, you best get them before they're pulled. It's usually only a matter of time before they get a cease and desist order (or worse).

    I figured that was the case. I just figured they would be available SOMEWHERE.

    I guess next time you get 'em while there hot! Even if you don't need them at the time.

    Check google, there is a place still selling them for $19/ea (black or white), i thought about buying one earlier today but i just don't need it. Wish i could justify the expense, but i can't :/

    Yeah I got the iHub2 when they first appeared and was one of the best purchases.

    ----------

    Link??

    I have searched google over and over and all I can come up with are reviews from when it came out and links to buy them but when followed they all say "Product Unavailable".

    I should've clarified. I meant the iHub 2. The one without the loop that looks more like an AEBS than the first iHub. Not sure if the iHub 2 is available anywhere, but the place I bought it actually sent an email saying it's no longer available due to legal reasons but they were still honoring orders placed before it was pulled.

    I just thought I would resurrect this 2 year old thread :).

    Anyone know where I can get one of these? I got one a few years ago but they seem to have completely disappeared.

    If the company was served a cease and desist letter by Apple's lawyers, it most certainly would have stopped manufacturing them to avoid being sued.

    The longer the wait afterwards, the less likely you'll find any available anywhere (and if you do the price will be horrendous).

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you won't find any. There's nothing listed on eBay and the only things to come up on search were old, dead threads and years old YouTube vids.

    This is the only situation where someone telling a Mac user they're only buying it for the logo is actually true :D
