    Coming from Hong Kong it will probably take forever to get here.

    According to their site, this is version 2 of that hub. So if Apple hasn't shut down the first version, maybe they won't shut down the second. Unless they're biding their time until they can really get them... Either way, ordering mine now :D

    LOL - I thought the same thing. I picked up both a black and white version. They look really cool and figured Apple with put the smack down on them in the near future.

    Yea I figured why not grab one while it is still available, looks pretty sick and I also did paypal to stay safe.

    Their website isn't even loading for me anymore, I'm thinking about ordering one off of eBay though.

    Well if you didn't get one, it's gone after Apple put pressure on MIC. They say that existing orders will be filled.

    Here's the email that I received this morning...

    Message from M.I.C Store

    You have received a new message regarding order #xxxx:

    Dear Customer, We are warned by Apple Inc. to stop selling the iHub and pull it down from our store. If you have already made a purchase, you are one of the lucky ones. We ship all orders within 3 working days after payment made but due to the Easter Public Holiday from Apr 22~25, shipping resumes only Apr 26. As we have many orders to process, there will be a slight delay. Delivery takes 10-14 working days after ship out from Hong Kong and tracking will be provided upon ship out. Please accept our apologies and rest assured that we are working hard to rectify this. w/rgds, Cyril Chang

    I wonder how they can still have the iHub1 still on their site because it also looks very apple-esque if you ask me. Maybe it's just that the iHub2 looks that good.

    Anyway this makes the purchase that much sweeter as the few that ordered early will be the only ones to have one.

    I just got mine today! I must say, the pictures on the web didn't do it justice! With the exception of a bunk USB to mini USB cable it works perfectly too :)

    I've yet to see any product mimic Apple's branding quite like this.

    That is until you flip it onto its back...

    Apparently a USB hub is crucial for backups...

    All opened up and unpacked.

    It didn't work at first, but thankfully that was due to a bad USB cable. It was too short anyway...

    And finally with the flash off.

    Excuse the quality of my pictures. I'm still getting the hang of my new camera.
