IDPC201WHT_mainWho needs to carry a clutch of compatible cables just to charge a few gadgets when you could just toss the CrossLink into your pocket/travel bag and be done? Best of all, it costs less than many single dedicated cables. The CrossLink has a standard big flat USB plug at one end, and what looks […]

b92d8497d7fd76530555bb37da495f87_largeThere’s probably one single fact that’ll get you interested in the fancy Juicies Lightning cable: Apple Lightning-to-USB adapter: $19. Juicies: $20. That’s right – for just a dollar more you can have aluminum plugs and a corded fabric cable instead of plastic and… More plastic. The Juicies is fashioned from “sandblasted anodized aerospace aluminium,†and […]

If you ever walked around Las Vegas’ Strip, then you’ll be familiar with its drunken-theme-park aesthetic. Every hedge and lawn is watered and trimmed to Disney-esque perfection. Every sidewalk is swept. The only difference is that the pedestrians carry three-foot-long plastic tubes of some sickly pink liquor. And of course, there are hidden speakers everywhere. [...]

Curly Charging Cables For Your Lightning Devices

Cables: I love what they do – keeping my beloved gadgets juiced and full of delicious data – but — unlike a playful kitten — I hate their tangled mess. Perhaps the perfect charger cable is here at last though: It’s the curly phone-style Lightning cable from Japanese company Sanwa.

The cable costs $ 23, stretches from a compact 22cm to a long-enough 45cm and comes in black or white. On one  [Read More...]

Zenbox’s slogan really says it all: “Hide the mess behind the desk.” As a dedicated throw-everything-in-the-closet-and-slam-the-door-before-it-falls-out practitioner, I can get behind this 100%. The Zenbox is a dock for your MacBook Pro: you plug one end into the left side of your Mac, and plug your various peripherals into the other.

The USP of this dock over others is that those peripherals sit at the end of a cable, letting you throw  [Read More...]

You know when you unplug your iPhone and your $ 20 Lightning cable goes slithering to the floor?

Klingg Cord Clip Catches Chaotic Cables

Klingg! That’s the sound of a grown man still unable to sever the maternal ties forged early in his life by a smothering mother. Just kidding. It is in fact the sound of my artisanal iPhone ringtones, recorded from the prayer bells of real Tibetan monks. Kidding again! Klingg is actually an iPhone accessory designed by the fictional Star Trek race… [Enough! -Ed].

Klingg is — truly this time — an earbud holder  [Read More...]

Magnetic Paperweight Wrangles Cables. Cuts Clutter

Here’s a great idea: put this magnetic paperweight on your desk and enjoy the relaxed tranquility of knowing that your cables will never fall to the floor again.

Or try this even better idea: go grab the super-strong rare-earth magnet from one of your disused iPad cases (or even its over-engineered packaging) and tape it to the edge of your desk. Voila! (or wa-la! or viola! as forum-posting morons like to say) – you have your  [Read More...]
