A: Yes, definitely. The products are called USB hubs. They allow you to connect more than one device into a USB port. However, if you are in need of a USB hub, make sure you get a powered hub. Powered hubs provide more consistent power to any USB device plugged into it, which should lead to greater reliability with those USB devices.

One product I just found out about recently looks great for iMac users, the iLynx hub. It is $60 and is powered, but does not require an external power supply, since it plugs into both USB and Firewire. The wedge shape allows it to fit perfectly in the base of the iMac. This makes it very convenient and stylish.
