Here's a trully crazy peripheral that is so amazingly stupid it could only come from the Japanese. A great compliment to the sushi-shaped pendrives, as shown in the picture (note that it's demoed with an iBook): http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000270051750/ (engadget link) A Japanese news story with more detail can be found here: http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/net/itmedia/20050726nt06.htm The Japanese story describes it as costing 24,800 yen (about US$250), and being "(probably) the World's Most Expensive, and most useless, USB cable". Yes, it really is a USB cable that looks exactly like a plate of spaghetti. For those wondering, "Napolitan" spaghetti is a Japanese creation combining a creamy ketchup-based sauce, hot dogs, onions, and maybe mushrooms in a dish that's named to sound Italian but isn't. Why I'd want an inedible plate of it sitting next to my computer with a USB port is beyond me.
