Just-Mobile's AluCube Mini (http://www.xtand.net/alucubemini.html) is an US$16.95 designer cable organizer. If you're willing to spring about 20 bucks on a stylish doo-dad to tidy up your cables, this is your baby. (Actually, you get two cable organizers for the price).
The AluCube Mini -- which, is as sleek and stylish as Just-Mobile's other products -- is made of aluminum, contrasted by black rubber inline for an improved grip. It does a fine job of preventing cable tangle in a bag, pocket or desks. It has a soft, rubber-lined slot to clamp cables down on flat surfaces and boasts a groove to curl and coil excess cable length.
The slot in which you insert cables is slim, so thicker cables may be a tight fit. However, it worked on all iOS cables that we tried, as well as a MacBook Air MagSafe adapter.
The AluCube Mini also comes with 3M non-marking adhesive patches in case you want to anchor the AluCube Mini in place for more permanent situations such as a work desk.
The Just-Mobile solution is a handsome product that does one simple job well. So 10 bucks per AluCube Mini is actually a pretty good deal.
