Sonnet Gets You Out of a Tight Spot;
Announces Sidekick, the Flexible USB 2.0 Adapter
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA– July 7, 2005–Sonnet Technologies, a worldwide leader
in upgrades for Apple Macintosh computers and iPod digital music players,
announces Sidekick, the double-jointed USB 2.0 adapter that bends over
backwards and sideways to connect USB devices in small spaces. Sidekick
plugs into recessed or closely spaced USB ports with ease, and its extreme
flexibility (180=9A rotation left-to-right, 180=9A sweep up-and-down) enable=
you to position an attached device in nearly any orientation.
Sidekick is short and narrow. Unlike using a cable, there’s no clutter.
Laptop users working in tight quarters can conveniently connect a small USB
device, regardless of the port location. Sidekick works with any USB device
in any computer’s USB port. Sidekick is also an ideal iPod shuffle
companion–users can connect their digital music player to any USB port on
a variety of computers and displays that normally present challenging or
impossible fits (including iMac G3, eMac, some iBook models, Apple Studio
Display) without an extension cable or dock. When space is limited and you
need to get connected, it’s great to have a Sidekick!
Any computer with a USB 1.1/2.0 port, any device or cable with a standard
USB type-A connector
Pricing and Availability
Sidekick (Part no. UAD-SDK) is available today with an MSRP of USD $12.95.
