Firewire 4-pin to 6-pin

This gem was distributed with an early version of the iPod. Intended for non-Mac users probably, as I cannot remember any model with a 4-pin socket.

SD to miniSD to microSD

Miniaturization asks for new adapters to be made, in consequence there’s adapting possibilities from micro over mini up to (normal) SD cards. Shown here: microSD to miniSD (left), microSD to SD (right).

2.5″ to 3.5″ IDE Adapter (Internal)

That one’s rarely seen outside of boxes: you can use it to connect a 2.5 HDD to a standard 3.5 IDE connector, either inside a desktop computer, or an external HD case.

Serial to PS/2 Adapter

This is definitely one of the ugliest adapters ever seen. I mean – look at it! Disgusting! Shame on anyone trying to “use” that one, for whatever purpose it might be.

Dr. Bott VGA Extractor (ADC to VGA)

A very expensive adapter that has served me for years … and fortunately doesn’t any more (I kinda dislike VGA signals, btw). But the product name certainly is nice, as well as imagining a certain “Dr. Bott” inventing one adapter after the other. His degree — in which science, btw? This one – though being […]

DMS-59 to dual VGA

I kinda like that one: converts a server-state DMS-59 port to two ordinary VGA’s. DMS-59 is now arriving in ordinary computers as well, supporting two dual-link displays on one port. Hooray! So I can finally add another 30″ screen to my desktop – just for IM and Email, of course. Well – definitely a nice […]

Unity Digital PC Adapter Card

Well, judging by the name, this “Adapter Card” can basically be used for anything, but to be more precise: it’s an USSMPCADAPT (S/M TO PC CARD). Translation: Use the PC-Card slot of your Laptop to browse the contents of a S/M (aka SmartMedia) card, and be happy!
