Ever feel like cords and cables are taking over your life? You’ve got chargers for your phone, laptop and other devices, cables connecting computers and printers and cords to power your small appliances. At home, your television probably has numerous cords and cables winding in and out of the back. In your garage or workshop, there are lengthy extension cords and power tool cords. Sure, many devices are now wireless (yes, they require chargers!) but the cord and cable tangle can get overwhelming.
