The world is changing, and it's changing fast. From abacus, to calculators to computers and its unending upgrades, no one can seem to keep up anymore. It seems that every time, our techies would surprise us with new ideas or inventions to maximize the use of that external intelligence called the computer.

As the 20th century drew to a close, the power and the capabilities of the internet have reached mammoth proportions. Thanks to routers, connecting to the internet and to the world has become faster and easier. Routers provide firewall and networking capabilities, which would make it faster for you to access the World Wide Web.

As if this is not enough, the USB hub was introduced. USB hubs are used to expand the networks that you can use and connect to. You can actually connect several machines to a USB hub and then you can connect it to your router.

With all these updates on computers and gadgets, and trying to keep up with a fast-paced world, the USB hub has become a best friend to techies all over the world. Along with their laptops, can you even count the number of USB devices these people carry? You can start from a USB card reader, USB scanner, USB docks for iPods, media players, etc.

Thus the USB hub has become essential as most computers simply don't have enough USB ports to handle the vast arsenal of USB devices that these people use. There has been a recent hype on two types of USB hubs: the Network USB hub and the solar-powered USB hub.

A network USB hub lets you connect wirelessly to other devices that you plug-in to its ports. It works using two types of ports: one is the network port where you connect your router using an Ethernet cable and the other type is the USB port where you can connect other devices and access them wirelessly. With this device, you can share up to 5 devices through the hub.

The solar USB hub, on the other hand, is popular to those who are always outdoors. This USB hub is not just a hub for USB devices but it can also act as a charger to as many as 4 devices at once by using the power of the sun. This solar USB hub can be recharged through direct sunlight, AC power or car power. It is convenient, portable, and environment-friendly.

There are already several researches and inventions that would not only make it easier for a person or a company to connect with each other easily and over high speeds. But it doesn't mean you can't be environment-friendly about it. The green wi-fi router will allow you to move into the next century without turning your back on Mother Nature.
