Yesterday I saw an interesting idea:
What are some potential reasons why so few cables have a coil in their middle - like old telephone cables? I know that we don't want all cables to be like that, but for cables that easily to be messy, keeping them short will makes thing looks neat. For example, this is my desk:
You see, all the terminals of cable 1 and 2 are very close to each others, but the length of the cables themselves need to be long, in case they need to be far away. You can argue that I can tie cable 1 so that they won't be messy, but in case I need to move my laptop in to somewhere (say to my bed next to the desk), I need to untie the cable, and when I move it back, I have to tie it again. And sometimes, messy causes accidents.
