I saw one of these cable organizers earlier this week when I visited a client for a home appointment. It looked pretty good so I ordered one on Amazon for $30 yesterday. Our designated cell phone charging station is in our kitchen where there is a big mess of wires from four separate chargers. I am hoping that this box eliminates the clutter and keeps all the cables nice and neatly organized. BTW - There is a larger version of the Blue Lounge Cable Box available but I ordered the Mini or smaller version that comes with a small 6 outlet power strip inside. If you are in need of a little cable organization near your computer setup or charging station this thing may do the trick. The device can be purchased from BlueLounge directly or from Amazon.
This video has some tips on how to work with an iPad Home button that isn't functioning properly. The good news is that the iPad gives us the ability to emulate the Home button using a five finger swipe or by enabling Assistive Touch (directions below).
Simulate the Home button
To navigate without the home button, you will want to enable Assistive Touch. This can be done by going to Settings > General > Accessibility, and scroll until you see AssistiveTouch, then enable it.
