Have you ever wished for a clean, wireless work area at home, with very few cables running to and from your computer? I do, every day. At home, my home office space is cluttered, not with paper or anything else you normally see on an office desk but wires. I’m actually afraid to touch these wires as I might not know how to put them all back.
Wires run from the computer to the electrical outlets. More wires run from the computer to its peripherals like the printer, the scanner, and the router. They’re everywhere, and it’s driving me crazy.
Oh, sure, I’ve applied several solutions, ranging from tying up these wires in a bundle with anything from electrical tape (ewww, sticky) to twine (which works okay, except for the fact that untying them drives me bonkers, too.
Aside from the meters upon meters of wires, there’s also the problem of missing connectors. We have a few computers at home, including several laptops, and I usually keep two to three network cables free, in case you want to move to another desk or move the computers around. The problem with this is that the network cables get lost in the jumble of computer cables that look like a snake mating ball.
Recently, I’ve come across a solution to part of my cable problems. It’s called CableDrop, a nifty little gadget that has been called an “elegant yet efficient solution for that cable mess” you have been trying to clean up for years.
CableDrop, a product of BlueLounge, is very simple. It looks like a small rubber clip that you can attach to any surface with an adhesive. This little gadget is also affordable (for a chance to organize chaos at USD 9.95 or around PHP 500) and available at the Rustan’s Gateway in Gateway Mall, Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City.
Sure, the location of the store is a bit far from Tacloban City. But, hey, I’m sure we all have relatives in the big city who can help us out. Speaking of relatives, I might have a cousin or sibling send me one for Christmas. Organized chaos, here I come!
