Tech Tip: Use a Paperclip for Cords & Cables at the Desk

Don't you hate it when you reach for your laptop's power cord or your smartphone's micro USB cable and you discover it has fallen onto the floor or behind a desk? A paperclip and some tape is all you need to prevent this from ever happening again...

So ridiculously simple, yet totally effective: all you need is a single paperclip and some tape (note: clear packing tape works best, depending upon the surface you're applying to).

String your laptop or USB/micro USB/Lightning cable through a paperclip, bending to allow pass-thru if required, then simply tape your new 2 cents cable guide onto the side of your desk, nightstand, countertop, or wherever you usually access a power or connection cord. The paperclip will keep your cord from dropping from reach now. Here's what it looks like in action (video).
