With hubs the number goes up fast
Authored by: magill on Mar 18, '04 07:26:01PM

I have three hubs connected to my flat-panel iMac:
1 - 7 port USB hub
1 - 6 port Firewire hub
1 - UFO Hub (xtremeMac) with 2FW and 4 USB ports.
USB: keyboard
wireless trackball
Keyspan DMR
Keyspan twin serial
Griffin iMic - Plantronix headset (mic)
- AV cable to my Stereo/TV system
Smart disk Memory Stick reader
Palm Cradle
iPaq Cradle
Firewire: 3 Disk drives
Pyro Webcam
Sony Digital Camcorder

So, that totals up to about 18 cables if I don't include either the Ethernet or the Phone connection, and since the system connects via 802.11 (Airport), they are not normally connected.

oh yeah, there is the power cord and the ProSpeakers... make that 21 cables.
