flipSYNC – sync cable on a keychain
Never get caught without a sync cable with flipSYNC, a sync cable in the form of a keychain. Well, never get caught with one unless you’re without your keys, which is more likely your larger problem, unless you need your phone to get your keys and your phone is low on juice, though what are the odds you’ll have access to a USB port then? But I digress…
Anyway, available from Scosche with either an iPod/iPhone connector or with both a micro-USB and a mini-USB connector, the flipSYNC is priced at $19.99 and will be available in Spring. Pretty pricey compared to a retractable cable, but also smaller and designed to go with you. That’s the price of convenience.

Looks neat, but I wonder what the durability is like. I’ve always had bad luck with retractable cables in the past. The wires are generally really thin and don’t usually last long.
That being said, I’ll probably pick one up when they’re released, it’d be pretty convenient for the times I need to connect my Pre to a computer to transfer files or sync music.
I’ll be able to put it right beside my 8GB iamaKey. :p
