Isn’t there an easy way to share USB device between computers?
Sharing peripherals is an annoyance people put up with because of space and costs issues of having duplicate equipment. Waiting to use someone else’s computer or relying on them to carry out a task can be really frustrating, as can swapping over USB cables.
