    Cababo frog design cable winder

Oh, the tangled lives we lead.
Our headphone cords constantly get twisted into confused mass of knots.
As for the unsightly mess of those data, keyboard and computer cables ... arrgh! Don't even go there.
Not to worry. All that's needed is a little cable management. is among the companies cashing in on cable clutter with simple products to keep those pesky cords intact.
For headphones, there's The Core, a tiny plastic spool with a slit at each end to adjust the cord length. It's like winding thread. A pack of three in assorted colors sells for $7.99.
Got bigger issues? Open the mouth of a whimsical frog ($4.99) to shorten a long cable and store the excess inside. When closed, all there is to see is a happy amphibian.
