If any product ever truly deserves to be called “jack of all trades but master of none”, it’s Thanko’s new iTable desk accessory. It preys on those who hate chaos on their desk at the cost of gobbling up a good chunk of your workspace.
The iTable connects to your desktop or laptop and theoretically expands its functionality with extra USB ports, a multi-format card reader, a SATA hard drive dock, speakers, and even a place to put your smart phone while it’s charging. If only that functionality managed to outweigh its hideous stark-white design and the inexplicable inclusion of a cup holder. I already have a cup holder at my desk. It’s called my desk. It works great. And it saves me from having to spend $US70 on this monstrosity.
