You can get USB cable extenders.  They are 15 feet long with a hub built into 
the connector blob at the far end.  There is a limit of 4 or 5.  They 
obviously reduce the power available to the end device.

I'm using a couple of them with no problems.

They aren't the solution to the world's connectivity problems, but they are a 
handy tool if you are working with USB.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
