One of the most interesting forms of technology that has taken the computer world by storm is USB technology that is applicable for virtually any type of device that can be connected to a computer. Take for example, the USB IDE adapter, which allows one to connect an external hard drive to their computer if they do not want to add another internal hard drive.
Since storage devices use the IDE interface format, one simply needs to connect the external hard drive to the computer using a USB device, and in no time, you can start storing information on the drive much like your internal hard drives.
Another example is the use of a docking station that consists of different types of port such as serial and USB ports and so on and so forth which one can use then to connect more devices but not having to unplug the others devices connected to the USB and serial ports already being used.
Another interesting device is the USB serial cable that provides one with more serial ports than just the two that almost every computer provides. Obviously this gives one more computing options for devices that require serial ports.
With all these devices at one’s disposal, the options that are made available to a user are numerous, while also keeping the expenditure at a minimum. Not only do these options make one’s life easier but they do not hurt the pocket as well.
