With a nine-volt battery, a paperclip, and a USB cable that has only  
one end -- the other is bare wires.  You wouldn't believe how  
difficult it is to do the initial handshake, but once you've got it

My father gets on my case for using the nine-volt battery.  In his  
day, they had a potato and a couple of wire leads plunged into it.   
But really, technology marches on and we should all embrace battery
