As we see some of the Peripherals and Devices are useful to be shared on a computer network for example : modem, printer, plotter, hard disk, pen drive, cd rom drive, dvd rom drive etc.
1. Do you feel other devices viz Scanner, Tape Drive, Digital Cameras, Monitor, Microphone, Loudspeaker, Keyboard, Mouse, Barcode Scanner, Cellular Phone etc if shared on a network could be useful ?
2. A Excel sheet creation of all those Devices and Peripherals which can be shared and not shared on a network could be useful for classification ?
Note : All the Peripherals, Devices are/have to be compliance with Universal Serial Bus Technology.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Serial_Bus
