j5 Wormhole Switch Makes Peace Between Macs And PCs


[CES 2012] j5 Wormhole Switch Makes Peace Between Macs And PCs       By David Ponce

The Wormhole Switch from company j5create does something most of us simply assumed couldn't be done: easily transferring files between PCs and Macs. No need for a network, no need for drivers or to screw around with settings. You simply plug one end of the Wormhole cable into a USB port on each machine, and you're done. You can even control the pointer of one computer with the mouse of the other. They immediately behave a little like one giant screen, with the pointer seamlessly scrolling from one screen to the other; file transfer is then a simple matter of drag and drop.

Now, I say Mac to PC, but the truth is that it doesn't have to be limited to that: PC/PC, Mac/Mac. It's a useful tool to carry around with your laptop; just think of how many times you've wanted to share a file with your friends and not done so for lack of an easy way to do it. It's $40 and available at Fry's and MicroCenter.
