The Macbook Air sure is a fine piece of Cupertino craftsmanship, but the lack of useful input ports is a complete downer on the slinky sexy soiree. Fret not, Flickr user Nybras.Rodrigo has conjured up a fantastic solution. He’s confident in his solution, and so are we. Check it out above. There are all the ports you’ll ever need; USB 2.0, Firewire 400, Firewire 800, Ethernet, DVI output, Superdrive, iPod Shuffle and even a floppy drive. A floppy disk drive! How did we all miss that one? Kudos, Nybras, you’re one up on everyone.

Hybrid LG Monitor Packs HDMI and 1080p Support

LG has been busy revamping its LCDs lately and the company’s latest model, the 22-inch M228WA, appears to be the star player with am HDMI port and 1080p capability. In addition, the LCD can be easily paired with another display via its USB interface (there’s also DVI). Add to that a speedy 2ms response time and 3,000:1 contrast ratio and you got yourself a mighty fine display (even though we wish it were slightly bigger in screen size).
