StashCard turns unused card slots into storage bins

stashcardWe always thought the PC Card slot in most laptops was designed to hold, you know, PC Cards. But what do we know? Turns out that it's actually a drawer you can use to hide extra cash, spare memory cards or just about anything you can squeeze into the slot. At least that's the idea behind the StashCard, a $10 insert that turns any empty PC Card slot into a tiny storage space (the manufacturer recommends using it to stash things like jewelry and extra toilet paper). We'd still rather use the slot to add EV-DO, extra USB ports or memory card slots to our laptop, but if you've got more slots (and fewer pant pockets) than you need, you can give this a try. At worst, it'll keep the dust out of your slot. At best, it could save you from a messy situation in public toi … ah, nevermind.
