Maybe we need to upgrade the installer too?

The house we bought years ago came with an existing home theater system, speakers wired into the walls, TV installed above the fireplace, components tucked away in a cabinet, all cables hidden away in the walls. It has been pretty awesome, but some of the components have started to fail. We bought a new TV, and the installer is talking about having to open up the wall to run the new HDMI cable alongside the existing cable that is already running through the wall from the TV to the component cabinet a few feet away. We really don't want to cut the wall open if we don't need to, and it seems to us that it should be feasible to use the existing wiring to pull through a new HDMI cable. Are we wrong? [more inside]

Wired devolution

My bedroom has one electrical outlet. I currently have 3 surge protectors plus the occasional extension cord so that I can plug in my ipod. All of the outlets in each of the surge protectors aren't being used, but since they are only six ft long they just don't extend far enough. [more inside]

Help me organize my gadgets.

Like any self-respecting geek, I've got a bunch of cool toys I carry around. Each of those toys, unfortunately, comes with a bunch of wires -- chargers, adapters, connectors... Help me keep them organized! [more inside]

Cable, Wires and Cords, Oh My!

What do you do with the assortment of cabling and other electronic doodaddery (especially that not currently being used and not wanting to throw away!) that one tends to accumulate in the course of lifetime when you have a love of almost all things electronic? [more inside]
