CableHub Cable Organizer Review
The latest cool thing on my radar is the CableHub Personalized Cable Organizer ($14.95). This thing is great. The cool folks at CableHub let me try one out for a few weeks and I really love it.
If you read this blog, then you know that I am all about minimalism, simplicity and being neat. The irony of minimalism is that sometimes you have to add something to minimize.
The CableHub is a simple, good-looking hub that tames the wild cables on your desktop — or anywhere you have unruly cables from the many devices in your life. You may be adding the hub, but you are eliminating clutter.
The idea is simple (which is why I love it). You open the top of CableHub, take the cords of up to seven devices and wrap the excess part of the cords around the hidden core. This takes up the slack of the cords that would otherwise flail around your desk. Snap the top back on, and in about 20 seconds, you just tamed the cable clutter on your desk.
The CableHub is really well made — not some cheapo thing. It has a nice weight to it, and rubber pad on the bottom, which is important to keep it from slipping about. It comes in round and square versions, and in multiple colors. I personally prefer the simple round, white version pictured above, but you may want something more personalized. That’s where the CableHub DesignStudio comes in.
Make it your own. A really cool feature of CableHub is that you can very easily add your own personal touch. It’s really easy. You just upload a picture to CableHub’s DesignStudio, crop it to fit the shape of your CableHub, then print and insert it under the protective clear plastic cover on the top. You can make it a picture of your kid, a pet, a nice landscape, or anything you like. You could even do a company logo and give CableHubs as corporate gifts. That’s better than some stress ball or water bottle.
I highly recommend the CableHub if you have lots of power-hungry devices and you want to bring sanity back to your work space. At $14.95, it’s also a nice gift.
