clutter-busting gadgets

I’m not much of a gadget person, but I’ve seen some designs that are truly clever and will improve your productivity or make life easier.

The bondi http://www.ibondi.com is a phone holder that allows you to hang your phone almost anywhere, even when you’re charging it.  Finding a spot to park the phone when I charge it is often a hassle, so this design really appeals to me.  It looks like companies are using the bondi as a promotional device; you might see them soon on vendor tables at conferences.

Quirky offers thoughtful solutions to tech concerns.  The Plug Hub www.quirky.com/products/64-Plug-Hub-Desk-Power-Cable-Organizer hides your electrical cords and keeps them from overtaking the space behind your desk.

I also like Quirky’s flexible power strip www.quirky.com/products/44-Pivot-Power-Flexible-Power-Strip that allows you to plug in multiple large chargers.  You can wrap it around a desk or table leg to keep it out of the way.

Another Quirky product is the Cordies cable organizer www.quirky.com/products/84-Cordies-Cable-Organizers which holds all those small cables that threaten to fall behind your desk.  The Cordies will keep you from crawling under your desk to recover cords.

mStand www.raindesigninc.com/mstand360.html raises your laptop to an ergonomic level and swivels, so you can show your work to others. It also has a place to store a keyboard and cords.

Finally, these two are not gadgets, but password managers that help you create and maintain user passwords. Lastpass http://lastpass.com/index.php and dataviz http://www.dataviz.com/PP_main.html allow you to keep track of all your passwords in one place.

Do you have a gadget that helps you feel more organized or productive?
