Like come on, who hasn’t figured out ways (or at least saved ways to a folder on their desktop called Hacks) to fix messy cables and power cords with binder clips, bread tabs and/or ribbons or something. And seriously, we all know by now that binder clips are the most versatile tool in a life hacker’s arsenal, right? Cardboard toilet paper rolls are a solid second place though.
Did you hear about the one where you tie extension cords together to prevent them from unplugging? Or the accidental genius that created rubber bands on a power adapter? And what about pen springs to extend the life of your cables! There’s just so many little fixes out there that blew our minds once upon a time but are just recycled over and over now. And that’s fine! We didn’t all know the world was round at one point. Or something like that. Whatever.
What’s your favourite life hack for technology? Is it one of the nine BuzzFeed cited in the video above or is it something even better? Or maybe it’s one of the 40 tricks we featured last year? Or maybe you just like seeing life hacks more than actually using life hacks.
If you’re not really sure what you’re favourite life hack is, make sure to check out our aptly-named sister-site, Lifehacker Australia! It has a bunch of great stuff.
