The US$24.95 Soba (<a href="http://tinyurl.com/q4u25cr" title="http://tinyurl.com/q4u25cr">http://tinyurl.com/q4u25cr</a>) by Bluelounge can help alleviate the problem.</p> <p>Soba zips loose cables up and consolidates them into a single tube that you can route and affix along walls, under desks, and just about anywhere. You use the Vortex zipper in a sliding motion to open and route cables. Once the zipper passes, Vortex technology will auto-coil the tube, bundling the cables inside.</p> <p><a href="http://www.macnews.com/2014/09/19/kool-tools-soba-bluelounge-cable-organizer" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.macnews.com/2014/09/19/kool-tools-soba-bluelounge-cable-organizer#comments MacNews MacTech MacNews Kool Tools MacTech Kool Tools Fri, 19 Sep 2014 11:42:42 +0000 dsellers 1260511 at http://www.macnews.com HoudahGeo is ready for Mac OS X Yosemite http://www.macnews.com/2014/09/19/houdahgeo-ready-mac-os-x-yosemite <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-upload-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_upload_image" width="128" height="128" alt="" src="http://cdn.macnews.com/sites/default/files/HoudahGeo-Icon.jpg?1411061306" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Houdah Software (<a href="http://www.houdah.com/" title="http://www.houdah.com/">http://www.houdah.com/</a>) has updated HoudahGeo, a geocoding solution for the Mac, to version 4.
