Every time you add another iWhatever to your arsenal, be it an iPhone, iPod, or iPad, you also get something you already had: a USB charging and sync cable. Let me guess, that thing goes right into one of the small zip pockets of your work bag, where it’ll get mixed up with the rest of ‘em, and someday end up getting “borrowed” from a co-worker, never to be seen again.
If those cables each had specific colors—let’s say red for iPhone, green for iPad—then instead of a big tangle of anonymous wires, you’d have a set of connectors each with their own purpose. The ChromaSync cables from CableJive are kind of a no-brainer. They’re 3 ft long, sync to both Windows and Mac, and come in five colors. Bonus feature: now your officemates won’t have any trouble telling which cables belong to you.
