Earbud Cord Control.
In Apple's iPod ads all looks great where you dance to your favorite music, earbuds hooked in, white cord flying freely about you as if nothing else matters.
It's an evocative image.
In the real world just walking around a room can become a special kind of obstacle course where your earbud cord seems attracted to every chair arm, table edge or drawer pull that you pass... Sometimes it seems like everything in the room wants a piece of that free flowing white cord.
Snik is a simple patented groove built into parts that already exist everywhere in your wardrobe. Zipper pulls, buttons, snaps, or buckles on your daypack. Almost any part can have the functionality to attach your earbud cord to hold it close to your body, out of the reach of pesky inanimate objects.
