Stick Some Extension Cables to the Back of Your iMac and Avoid Feeling Around for USB Ports

iMac users have forever struggled with the desktop's annoying USB ports, always having to reach around the computer and feel for a USB port just to plug in a flash drive. The guys at Sugru have a solution: just tape (or Sugru) some extension cables to your iMac to "add" ports onto the front of your screen.

Look, I get it. The iMac is beautiful. Its USB ports are in the back for a reason, and sticking some ugly, exposed cables to the side are only going to ruin Apple's brilliant design philosophy. However, the iMac's ports are so annoying that I think it's completely worth the downgrade in asthetics. If you really wanted to be clever, you could probably position the extension cords so that the ports were sticking out the side of your monitor and thus invisible from the front, but still easily accessible. Either way, the choice is up to you—but as someone who's had to use an iMac for more than a day, I'd do this in a heartbeat. Check out the video above to see what this trick looks like in action.

And, of course, if you're sick of hearing about all the awesome things Sugru can do and don't want to buy more, you could probably accomplish the same thing with a bit of masking tape.
