As a technophile one of the things I've always hated dealing with is what I've humorously frequently referred to as “cord control”.
Whether it be for earbuds, USB cables, or AC power cords there never seems to be a way to prevent the frustration of cord spaghetti.
Needless to say, I was delighted when I came across the little device pictured above.
The Applecore is in ingenious device. It literally looks like an apple that has been eaten leaving only the core behind. The ends are slotted to hold the wire, cord, or earbuds in the center area is where the excess cord is wrapped around. This is a quick, easy, and ingenious way to keep your headphones from getting tangled as well as keeping cords that go to your computer from becoming an unmanageable mess of knots.
Now that most of us in dentistry are hiding our computers in cabinetry to help decrease clutter in the treatment area, cord management is even more important. Whenever there is a problem that requires accessing the computer the biggest problem I run into his cord clutter. I can see how using the Applecore device can make this problem a thing of the past.
I Artie owned a few of these devices. They are affordable and work well. If you're looking for a way to manage cords and earbuds you should check this product out!
