Leave it to Macally to take something as simple as a 3.5mm audio cable and add some flair: the company's Bubjack Retractable Audio Cable ($15) packs a five foot cord into a compact package. Two plugs stick out of the open end and can independently be pulled out to the desired length, reducing unnecessary cable clutter regardless of how you're using the cable. When you're done, just give them a tug and they retract back into the round holder. It's one of the nicest designs we've yet seen for a simple audio cable.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
