Tangled cords are absolutely the bane of my existence and yet I’m not quite anal enough to wrap twist ties and rubber bands around excess slack, so I enthusiastically applaud the shortest version possible of any proprietary cable (or any cable, for that matter). Applause, then, to the unfortunately-named iStubz iPod cable.
Available in 7cm or 22cm lengths, they’ll set you back $7.95 or $8.95 respectively. Or you can get both together for $14.95. And if you’re not a fan of iPod White, the iStubz come in black as well. Shipping starts at five bucks.
