One of the things that got me to abandon my PC-making ways and switch to an iMac was Apple’s iconic aesthetics. The clean, condensed form of Apple’s all-in-one desktop made for a much less cluttered office than my tower/monitor/speakers/USB keyboard and mouse did. While my desk is still occasionally marred by an iPhone/iPad sync cable (even with iCloud and wifi sync it can be easier to handle large transfers via direct link) it’s far less cluttered than it was.
For those of you that are still losing the battle with the electrical spaghetti dangling from your collective devices Neatorama has a novel way of handling your problem. The Mousetail Cordwrap offers a one-tail-fits-all resizable, reusable cable organizer. The little mice have flexible appendages that can wrap up loose wiring, allowing you to keep your work area more organized. While it may not match the aesthetic of Apple’s product line, it’s arguably the cutest solution to cord clutter out there. The Mousetail Cordwrap comes in packs of two for a very reasonable $5.95 at one of my favorite oddity retailers, the NeatoShop.
