Cable-keeper coil

Today in my ongoing series of photos from my travels over the years: a coiled cable-keeper in a shop in Melbourne (though the coil bore a label saying MADE IN USA). The cable came down from the ceiling to the cash-register, protecting the Ethernet cable that ran down from a drop-ceiling. I've been responsible for more than my share of truly ugly cable-runs with sudden drops in the middle of the room where the data needed to be -- a handsome little gizmo like this could have made my fugly hacks into decor.
