Revolving USB ports for health and happiness

Colorful ports can help avoid unsightly tangles

It's been noted more than a few times that some of us at Crave have issues where cables are concerned. (We try not to talk about it, for Erica's sake.)


So we're always pleased to see a product that helps manage the inevitable tangle of unsightly wires we so dread, such as these revolving USB ports we happened to see on Gizmowatch. The proliferation of USB devices--and lack of ports in our older computers--has led to some unruly and possibly hazardous combinations in our immediate areas, and we fear that the fire marshal may be onto us. A big part of the problem is USB plugs we've unwisely forced into their slots.

Apacer has addressed this challenge with a simple solution (always the best kind), which keeps those fat plugs from getting into a shoving match at the expense of your personal safety. The colors make us happy too.
