    Both the USB hubs in my Macbook dont seem to be picking anything up (iphone, usb memory cards, printers, etc..nothing).
    Anyone know if there are any tricks I can try to get them working, before I need to go into a Mac store for repairs?

    Just try a simple ordinary restart. Sometimes OSX can shut down USB ports if a device tries to draw too much power. In your case it might just be fixed by a simple restart. Give it a go

    wow, I can't believe you didn't already do this. That's the first thing you should do if something is acting weird.

    I'm having the same problem. Restarting only solves the problem for a short time. Usually a day. I'm out of warranty. Am I just screwed or are there other tricks I can do to really fix this?
