I adore hearing about gadgets and gizmos you readers found out there in the real world, so I was pleased as punch when Cherryluv e-mailed me to share her love for Tetran. Tetran is a small, colorful cable winder for your iPod or MP3 player's earbud headphones that reminds me of a bathtub toy combined with PacMan character. You can wind your cable around Tetran's body and use its mouth as a holder for your earbuds. It also comes with a removable ball-bearing style chain so you can attach it to your bag.
"I carry everything in my purse, including my iPod and its earphones," says Cherryluv. "Sometimes my earphone cord gets in the way of everything else in my purse, but now that I have a Tetran, the cord is secured and is staying in one spot until I want to use it! They're just really cute and can also be used as a foot massager and hand stress reliever." Tetran costs $12.95.
