Sick and tired of your computer cable jungle? Unclutterer has put together a great list of helpful tips to keep your desk area clean. The most useful, I think at least, is to keep your desk in mind whenever you buy a new gadget or computer and consider the number of additional cables the device will add to your workspace. Here's more:
- Laptops will usually only require a single power cable. Also, they can be easily stored out of sight when not in use.
- Opt for bluetooth and wifi enabled peripherals over those that require cords. This is a great way to get rid of cables for your keyboard, mouse, and printer.
- If you use a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, an iMac will also only require a single power cable. This is a good alternative to a laptop if you need a larger display. An iMac also affords the benefit of an integrated webcam that won’t require any additional cables.
- Many newer peripherals are able to receive power over either USB, Firewire, or Ethernet. Not only does this help you reduce the number of cables, but it also can spare you from having to deal with those large and heavy wall-wart transformers that are usually required.
