Cords are a necessary evil, and the fact is that they are hard--or at least time-consuming--to tame. AT:Home Tech has had 16 articles in the Cables & Cords section since our humble beginnings 2 months ago, and AT editors have been highlighting options since long before Home Tech's existence. Case in point: Here's a great how-to article from AT:SF from a bit over a year ago that highlights the basic how-to of taming the "dust bunny shangri-la." Their article shares what eLink, Earthlink's newsletter, recommended for four fix-its: 1. Switch to a wireless keyboard and mouse. 2. Create a home wireless network. 3. Lift your main power strip up off the ground and velcro it to the back of your desk, the better to ventilate and access your cables. 4. Manage the snake pit with various doo-dads designed for this function. Check out the article for a list of options for fulfilling #4, beyond the items we've already highlighted here at AT:Home Tech.
