Default Can't find a wideband i like

I want a handheld portable wideaband unit i can use for more than just my miata. Must be a self contained unit like the LM1. Must be able to log within itself at the very least rpm+afr. Must be able to connect to pc via usb(what's with serial connections?). does anyone make what i'm looking for?

That's the silliest thing I think I've ever heard. You aren't actually serious are you?

i was serious, it's ancient and i don't want to throw down good money on something with an old *** interface my laptop doens't even have, i know i can get adapters and whatnot but i don't care i think they should at least offer a model with usb, i don't really care about cost here and can wait until what i want is offered. I searched around and couldn't find anything i was happy with so i figured i'd post it here and see if someone else knew of something i was overlooking
