Cable YoYo

One of the overlooked but cool tools in the Eastgate tools page is the cable yoyo. It's a simple idea: a way to wind up the extra length of your USB, firewire, and headphone cables.

I've got a bunch of these in my laptop bag, keeping all those cords from tangling each other. And I've got more on my desk. (They come with a peel-off adhesive strip so you can attach them to the side or back of your computer, or under your desk).

A simple idea, nicely executed.
