Cables, whether individually or in great numbers, are a mess to deal with. For some freakish property of their nature, they twist and tangle in ways that can’t be explained. No amount of intervention can seem to keep them in their pristine fresh-out-of-the-package condition of perfect loops and straight lines for long. As a result, users are either going with 3-, 4-, 12-in-one USB cables or jumping onto the wireless-everything bandwagon. For users who know they can’t make that kind of leap but want to keep frustrations at a minimum in a cable world, there is the AluCube Mini from Just Mobile, a lightweight, portable cord holder for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac devices.
It’s hard not to notice, but hardly anyone questions it. Most electronic accessories out in the market today come either in black, white, or some bland, predictable combination of the two. While there’s nothing wrong following a black and white color scheme, an occasional splash of color livens things up and takes some of the monotony away from standard design. Nice’s CableKeeps character plugs are an answer to this boredom with their bold blocks of color.
