Hardware

Submission + - USB Laptop remote console, any OS, no drivers (dmtz.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Great little product I picked up from Startech, then I found out it was simply rebranded from a Canadian company called Digital multitools. This is so useful for any geek that has to support multiple hardware platforms. You can take control of ANY computer, Windows, linux, Mac, just by plugging this into the usb and video ports. I don't normally post about hardware, and it's got a decent price tag (work paid for one for each member of our support team) but they are so handy when we have to walk the racks and plug into a server that crashed. This thing even gets connectivity at the BIOS screen, no drivers for the target machine. Neat thing is it comes with the software for the host machine on a 2gb USB stick that is smaller than the tip of my finger. Anyway, thanks all.
