Technology often goes hand-in-hand with cables and wires. Cables for power, cables for data, cables to connect peripherals and external devices and chargers and telephonic gadgets. Whether you use a computer at home, have a home office or recording studio, or use a workstation at the office, you are almost certainly enmeshed in an octopus-like tangle of cables and wires.
You could take the morning off from anything productive, and attack the problem area with twist-ties and duct tape. It might not look great, it might take hours – but the mess will have been conquered. Pretty much.
Or you can drop three bucks and pick up this week’s DOTW. In three fast, easy steps, your cables are wrangled and neatly organized. And it comes from Monster – they know a little something about cables.
So master that mangled mess today. Find out all about it here.
Most of the time, our DOTWs are geared toward helping you get things done faster, or better, or cleaner. They’re productivity aids or device enhancements – aiming to help you and your computer be all you can be.
Not this week. This week, we’re bringing you a small, gaudily-colored circus cannon that plugs into your USB port. A circus cannon you can aim and fire using your keyboard, your mouse, or (if you have one) your joystick. It fires three foam-tipped rockets up to 10 feet, at velocities exceeding what you might reasonably expect. And it serves absolutely no useful purpose, other than having fun.
This week’s DOTW is a compact, easily-carried set of 12 miniature screwdrivers. They’re ideal for disassembling (and hopefully reassembling) watches, cell phones and other mobile devices, LED flashlights, and all manner of electronic gadgetry. It includes a comfortable metal driver handle with 12 interchangeable driver bits, including no less than six hard-to-find Torx drivers.
This set retails for $29.99, but this week only it’s a steal at $6.99.
There’s an ancient maxim that says you can never be too rich, too thin, or have too many USB ports.
Fumbling behind your computer, bumping your head on the underside of your desk, swapping cables and devices – all of this goes away with the addition of this week’s DOTW: a sleek, futuristic-looking seven-port USB hub. Such a simple, elegant solution, at a such a trifling price: a mere $11.99. (it normally sells for $29.99.)
There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to use the wrong tool for a job.
Intended not only for computers and other electronics, this set of seven precision screwdrivers is also perfect for eyeglasses, cell phones, toys, and pretty much anything that has a battery compartment. Its regular price is $39.99, but as this week’s DOTW, we’re selling it for a low $9.99.
If you’re like most people – including us – you have a plethora of electronic gadgets and chargers strewn across your home, your office, your dorm.
Cell phones, iPods (and other MP3 players), digital cameras, game controllers, and so on, each with their own AC adapter or USB cable. Our latest DOTW is aimed at consolidating that rat’s nest of cables and adapters into a single location, easily maintained and wonderfully convenient. And for 13 bucks, it’s easy on the checking account, too.
