Surely a future laptop wouldn't be a slave?

Cameras, yeah. What about making something that would work with practically
everything, but not be too expensive?

Why hasn't someone made a little thing that works as a master, with several
usb ports, and a screen from which you can initiate file transfers between
devices? It shouldn't be too hard to make, or expensive.

Even an add-on for something like the gameboy advance, which is a marvellous
bit of kit for things other than playing games on.
