I am confronted with USB memory keys and Android tablets which are labelled "eyeboom".

Does anybody know the manufacturer's name of these devices? I have searched everywhere but "eyeboom" as a manufacturer of electronic devices does not seem to exist.

That's the purpose to find manufacturer? This is probably some rebranded Chinese generic manufacturer (which can be sold under 10 different names). –  Petr Abdulin Feb 28 '13 at 10:26

Microsoft includes a utility in its Windows Driver Kit (WDK) called USBView:

USBView (Universal Serial Bus Viewer, Usbview.exe) is a Windows graphical user interface application that enables you to browse all USB controllers and connected USB devices on your computer. USBView works on all versions of Windows.

which provides a wealth of information about connected USB devices. It also decodes the vendor ID (image from here):

Install USBView, plug in the USB devices, open USBView and see which manufacturer information is shown in the idVendor field.
