USB Madness

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.

  • Keyboard
  • Regular mouse
  • Trackball mouse
  • Printer
  • iPod
  • Memory Card reader
  • IR receiver for the Windows Media Center remote control
  • External hard drive
  • Bluetooth adapter
  • USB headphone/headset
  • Gamepad

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?
