It occurred to me last night, as I hooked up some new gadgets to my computer, that I have… an obnoxious amount of USB peripherals.
- Regular mouse
- Trackball mouse
- Memory Card reader
- IR receiver for the Windows Media Center remote control
- External hard drive
- Bluetooth adapter
- USB headphone/headset
This was brought to mind when I had to hook up a powered USB hub last night, because I ran out of USB ports on my computer (and my computer has 8 USB ports of its own!).
Is it… bad that I have so much crap attached to my computer? Or is it normal these days to have dozens of USB peripherals?
