USD 90 seems a bit inflated, but I really can't judge just how much good work has gone into this.

But can't you achieve the same functionality by simply using ShareTool?

Looked at this, thought "Nice; excellent idea". Then I looked at the price and found myself flat on my arse, having fallen off my chair. Perfectly willing to pay a reasonable price for something like this, but a hair short of $90.00 is just excessive, IMHO.

Agreed! For less money you can have access to not only a remote USB, but you entire computer plus anything that is plugged into it via any interface. Nice idea, bad financial approach.

yeah, I would want this, but for that price I would rather hire a butler to fetch me my peripherals
