Griffin Technology wants you to Simplifi your life
by Mark R
I believe that it was Henry David Thoreau who wrote in Walden: “Out life is frittered away by detail…Simplify, simplify, simplify!” Of course, if he really wanted to take his own advice, he would have written “simplify” only once.
One of the things in life that really need to be simplified is our desktops. Many of us have all sorts of accessories to our PC like memory card readers and iPods, and the Simplifi is designed to take up a lot less real estate on the desk.
The Simplifi is clad in anodized aluminum, and attaches to the computer via USB. Fortunately, no software is required, and my computer recognized it right away.
From there, it can be used to read and write media cards like the SD, XD, CompactFlash, Memory Stick, and the Memory Stick Pro. It also has two USB ports in back for any USB device that you wish to use as well.
It can also be used as an iPod or iPhone dock, and it has six dock inserts for this. It also comes with an AC cord, but I was able to get the Simplifi to read and write memory cards with the USB alone.
The Simplifi can be purchased on the Griffin Technology website for a price of $69.99.
