    Synchrotech has released its "MicroU2E USB 2.0 to USB 2.0 Mode Express Card", which is yet another way to integrate an ExpressCard into a machine that wasn't originally made to accept them. Of course, other methods of getting your ExpressCard to function via USB do exist, but the MicroU2E is a simple and small device that works solely with USB-based cards and provides all the power it should need for that HSDPA / HSUPA card to function. It does not support any PCIe based ExpressCards. It's expected to retail at $40 and it works with both Vista and OS X.

    Hm. Good news for ibook owners that need an express card slot.

    Where do you get expresscards anyways?

    ExpressCard is the 'new PCMCIA'. It is PCIe 1x I think and usually used for Soundcards, Videocards, SATA Cards, Firewire Cards, USB Cards, NICs, Cardreaders...

    Anything one would miss on a notebook :)
