4 basic rules of gadget ownership
Every so often my home becomes overwhelmed with techno-clutter. I look around and there's a cord sticking out of nearly every outlet. Or a box for a phone I haven't used in years magically reveals itself at the bottom of a drawer (usually with tiny easy-to-swallow toys inside).
After I say something ridiculous like "why isn't everything wireless?" while shaking my fist at nobody I pull it together and remember the 4 Basic Rules of Gadget Ownership:
Protect and personalize your electronics,
Store and label the components that come with a phone, tablet etc. in a storage bag,
Create a centralized home charging station, and
Sell, recycle or donate the devices and components when you move on to the next must-have gadget.
