OXO leaves the kitchen, aims for your desk

You’ve probably seen OXO cooking implements on your many trips to Bed Bath and Beyond — you know, they’re usually grippy, silicone-enhanced spatulas and the like. It seems that OXO is looking to expand their ergonomic empire to the gadget realm, although they’re starting mighty small. This little cord caddy ain’t exactly headline news, but it’s nice to know that OXO is trying its hand at stuff I’m likely to use.

It’s die-cast zinc with a nonslip base, useful for keeping a couple USB cords available on your desk without having them slip back behind it. Should be available in your neighborhood next month.
