Magnetic Paperweight Wrangles Cables. Cuts Clutter



Here’s a great idea: put this magnetic paperweight on your desk and enjoy the relaxed tranquility of knowing that your cables will never fall to the floor again.

Or try this even better idea: go grab the super-strong rare-earth magnet from one of your disused iPad cases (or even its over-engineered packaging) and tape it to the edge of your desk. Voila! (or wa-la! or viola! as forum-posting morons like to say) – you have your own free cable tidy. And better yet it won’t actually untidy your desk by cluttering up its surface.

To be fair, the MOS probably is a lot cleaner-looking than the magnet I just stuck to the side of my desk with a torn fragment of dirty masking tape, but it is also infinitely more expensive, at $20 (my setup cost $0). And my DIY solution doesn’t have a micro-suction base or come with three magnetic cable ties for non-magnet-loving cables.
