Product News: A PCI Express to ExpressCard Adapter Works on the Mac


A customer of mine (In my Daily Planet job of being an Apple Tech) confirmed that the Kuroutoshikou PCI-e to Expresscard adapter works in Mac-Pros and in PowerMac G5 towers. (Not requiring any further drivers)

This is good news for those of you that want to use your EVDO mobile broadband cards from your MacBook Pros in your home or business.

One side benefit of the card is that it gives you an extra USB 2.0 port.

For now, you must import the card from Japan. It runs $40 + shipping from Japan. I'm sure someone like OtherWorld Computing will offer it soon though.
