Here’s a little exercise for you to try.
If you’re currently at your desk in front of a computer, stand up and take a look behind all the equipment. Or if you’re sitting in your living room, take a glance behind your big-screen TV.
Go ahead. We’ll wait.
OK, so what did you see? If you saw a clean, neatly-arranged collection of connectors, cables, and wires, you can stop reading right now. You’re golden.
But if you saw a tangled rat’s-nest of snarled wires, intertwined cables, and just general chaos, well…we’re here to help.
This week’s Deal is from legendary accessory wizards Monster Cable. It’s called Cable-It, and it’s a fast, simple method of organizing all those cables and wires into something resembling order. They’re normally 20 bucks, but this week (while supplies last) we’re selling them for three dollars. At that price, you can afford several – and your life is about to get measurably more organized.

Have you had a chance to check out Apple Music yet? The service, which was rolled out June 30th, has enjoyed a mostly positive reception so far. But many people don’t realize it’s much more than a music streaming app. It’s also intended to function as a social hub, helping everyone find new music and new artists – and not necessarily the “big name” stuff.
As Apple describes on their YouTube channel:
Apple Music is a place where music is treated like the art it is, with a sense of respect and discovery. It’s also a place that accommodates and supports musicians, and provides an environment for artists and fans to engage. Stream millions of songs—and discover music you’ll love with handpicked playlists and recommendations from our experts. Listen to Beats 1, our 24/7 worldwide station broadcasting the best new music direct from Los Angeles, New York, and London that’s anchored by world-class DJ Zane Lowe. And Apple Music Connect gives you a direct line to your favorite artists; where they can share demos, remixes, lyrics, photos—really anything they wish—straight to you, the fan. We’re taking all the ways you love music, and bringing them together in one complete place; one complete thought around music.
So what do you think? If you’ve had a chance to try Apple Music, what are your initial impressions?
