brings us yet another great inventive idea they found on Instructables
. A 5 minute or less job to keep those nifty though slightly too big ear-buds detangled. All you'll need for this is a junk-mail or old (and hopefully expired) credit card, scissors, and 5 minutes.
The basic idea is to cut certain notches into the card, so your earbud wires are held by the plastic and wound up neatly. I can't tell you how many times a day I fight with my earbuds to stop getting all twisted, and I keep them in the same place, they rarely ever leave my desk, so I can't imagine floating around a backpack or briefcase, and the tangled mess it would become.
Check out the full details at Instructables, and don't forget to browse around LifeHacker's site as well, both are great resources for finding and finishing that perfect DIY project.
