Cufflinks double as USB drive, Wi-Fi hotspot
The next time you struggle to buy a gift for the man with everything, consider a $250 set of cufflinks that he likely doesn't have. But not just any old ones; how about a pair that doubles as a 2 GB flash drive and Wi-Fi hotspot?

The next time you struggle to buy a gift for the man who has everything, consider a $250 set of cufflinks that he likely doesn’t have. But not just any old ones; Engadget notes that Brookstone sells polished silver cufflinks that hide handy mobile technology functions. Both links hide a standard USB port allowing these to double as a 2 GB flash drive. With the proper software installed on a PC, the links can share the computer’s Internet connection over Wi-Fi for multiple devices. These run off of the computer’s power, so there’s no battery to deal with.

Are there cheaper flash drives and apps to share a Wi-Fi connection? Sure, but not with this form and function: Geeky but stylish!
