If one of your goals for 2010 is to get your pile of gadget cables under control, I can help. But, if you're looking for a sweet and sexy tool to allow your cables some room to breathe, check out the Sling Back. Not just for making your legs look longer, this Sling Back is a retractable universal cable manager that fits cords as tiny as 1/8" in diameter (as in, your headphone cords), and sucks up to three feet of cable in its sleek little body. That's quite an appetite.
But, the best part is, the Sling Back comes from Quirky — a site where I can find a robust supply of cool, original products — and is made by independent inventors for the low, low price of $10. You certainly won't find a Steve Madden slingback for that price.
