Default Belkin Releases Switch-to-Mac Cable

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.belkin.com/pressroom/releases/uploads/11_12_08SwitchtoMac.html' target='_blank'>http://www.belkin.com/pressroom/rel...witchtoMac.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The new Belkin Switch-to-Mac Cable provides a simple way to transfer files, settings, preferences, and more from your PC to a new Mac computer. Unlike existing products where you have to drag and drop specific files you want to transfer, the Switch-to-Mac Cable-with its easy-to-use Migration Assistant-automatically moves your music, movies, photos, files, and Internet preferences, making the transition from PC to Mac as seamless as possible. Now that Mac computers support Windows&reg; applications, a growing number of PC owners are switching to them, making the ability to work with existing PC files a necessity. The Switch-to-Mac Cable ensures a hassle-free experience when transitioning to your new Mac."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1226582282.usr18053.jpg" border="1" /></p><p>If you're looking to make the move to a Mac, the hardest part is migrating over your stuff.&nbsp; Belkin seems to have that in mind with the Move-to-Mac cable.&nbsp; We Mac users have had the benefit of built in OS X software to do the same thing for years called the Migration Assistant.&nbsp; I'm glad the ease of it has been extended to Windows users who want to <span style="text-decoration: line-through;">join the cult</span> buy a Mac.&nbsp; I may buy one just to help people switch.&nbsp; In the end, it'll end up making my life easier in the long run.&nbsp; Anyone else with me here?</p>

OT: But their USB hub for Mac Mini looks and works well with the Airport Extreme base station (802.11n)

I like the simplicity this cable (should be able to) provides, but for someone who isnt helping others to move to Macs, this thing seems a bit overpriced.

Nonetheless, given the comfort it adds, it might be worth it, especially for the less-technically inclined.
