This Apple II SD card reader is retrotastic and functional

apple disk 2 card reader

Compared to USB hubs, which come in all shapes, sizes, and themes, SD card readers rarely get special treatment. They're usually plain, lame, and not worth showing off. But as bitter as I am about SD card accessories being largely ignored, I'm willing to put all that behind us thanks to this retro Apple Disk II reader. It is a thing of beauty.

Featuring a remarkably accurate case design, signature red light, and even a working latch, it's a fantastic nod to old school Apple hardware. It comes in classic beige or unfinished versions in black and white, and sells for US$50. Yeah, that's pretty pricey for an SD card reader, but you can't put a price on memories.
