According to the IBM Dictionary of Computing, 10th Edition, the definition
for daisy chain is:
"A method of device interconnection ..."

The word that follows daisy chain in the dictionary, is daisy-chained cable.
Defined as "...a cable that has two or more connectors attached in series."
which would most likely be what you would use to daisy chain your

Therefore, I think the appropriate terminology would be:
"Using daisy chaining, a computer, scanner, and printer, can be connected to
all be used at once,"

just my 2 cents worth
