The series of cords needed to run your life from a desk or armchair, by connecting all your computer equipment, entertainment devices, and lamps. Cable spaghetti can be recognized by its nexus at a surge protector. Most appliances have at least one cord or cable; many have several. Wireless devices are represented in the spaghetti by their various rechargers, none of which are compatible, so you must have a different one for every device.
"I use velcro wraps to contain my cable spaghetti." "I had to deal with the cable spaghetti behind my desk to add speakers to my computer at work."
