iMacompanion Adds USB Port To You iMac’s Foot


Would you pay $39 for the convenience of a front-facing USB port in your iMac? If so, you’re gonna love the iMacompanion, which is simultaneously one of the neatest widgets ever, and one of the worst-named gadgets in history.

The idea is simple. The iMacompanion is a USB extension cord with a super-flat cable that is lim enough to run underneath the iMac’s foot without making it wobbly. A little lip on the bottom stops it from slipping back when you plug something in, and it is angled slight up to make, I don’t know, looking into it as your type a little easier?

Whatever, the iMacompanion works with pretty much any iMac since 2004, and can be had for as little as $25 if you pitch in on the Kickstarter campaign (for possible October delivery).

Or you could do what I just did and take a regular USB extender and stick it to the side of your iMac with double-sided tape or an adhesive pad. And I mean that literally – I literally just did it.

    Do you ever reread your texts??
    To YOUR iMac’s foot….instead of To You iMac’s…..the headline already flawed, let’s not go through the rest! American?

      I agree. Terrible article all around. If you don’t like it, leave it alone.

    One port is not worth the price or trouble. I like the angle it sits at and maybe a version with 4-6 ports would be better received.

    It is a good idea, but the fact that it is only a USB 2.0 port makes it a no-go for me.
