TARDIS USB Hub  
Look what I got for christmas... a TARDIS 4-port USB hub!!

http://www.thinkgeek.com/computing/accessories/9223/

It makes the sound effect every time you plug in a USB cable, and the light on top flashes... the attention to detail is incredible, it even has the writing "POLICE TELEPHONE FREE..." on the side in tiny writing. The description on the site ends with "The Bad Wolf is watching." I love it.

I bought one of those at Comic Con a couple years back. I loved it. I loved that you could also turn the sound effect off.

It broke a couple of months ago and that made me sad :(

I daresay my parents will soon want me to turn off the sound effect... I wouldn't want to, but it's great that they give you the option to. I have the temptation to repeatedly plug in the same USB cable again and again just to hear it. It's just so exciting!

oh, so jealous! I want one of those. My own hub has decided to start acting crazy, so why not replace it with a TARDIS one?

On another thought, they really should try to think of one to work with Torchwood. I mean, who wouldn't want their own Torchwood hub? *giggle*

Can I ask a question- how is the TARDIS sounds? Does it sound like it does on the show?
Ellie: Eyebrows jellocomics on December 26th, 2009 04:51 am (UTC)
It makes a sort of clunky noise and then it turns into the real "whoosing" noise you hear on the show. It's very realistic! My family thought it sounded terrible (they don't watch) but I say it sounds perfect!!

Thank you very much.

Ooh, I have one of those -- it's at the heart of our network at home.

Wooo, I got one too.

Me too! Me too! I LOOOOVE it!

I have one too. :) My hubby thinks I'm nuts.
Believe me, you yourself will want to turn off the sound after a while.
But it is so fun to have it sitting there, it's blue light shining. :)

I'll get sick of it if I use it too often, but I don't use USBs much so I hope the novelty won't wear off too soon!

What a great present! I totally want one, except for the fact that it would cost more to ship it here than the price of the actual item! Stupid exorbitant Think Geek shipping!
Ellie: Simmface jellocomics on December 27th, 2009 12:44 am (UTC)
I know, shipping is so costly, it's the main reason I rarely buy anything from the internet!

I hate to be a humbug, but this is a crafting community. As cool as this is, can we keep non-crafting entries to a minimum? Thanks.

Sorry, no worries!

I love Thinkgeek. I have purchased many a present through them. I have a phone Dalek which spins and lights up.
