Belkin BreakFree adds magnetic breakaway connector to your guitar cable

by Darren Murph, posted Jul 22nd 2008 at 5:00PM

From all the coffee shop musicians here at Engadget, we’d like to sincerely thank Belkin for producing this marvelous device. For the rest of us who run around on stage like madmen, we have our doubts about how well this will work. Nevertheless, the BreakFree Connectors were designed to add a magnetic breakaway point in your 1/4-inch cable, meaning that things will simply snap away if too much pressure is applied. Sure, this could save you a mint in shredded cable costs, but we’d venture to say that only the calmer performers in attendance will really find it useful. Snatch (gently, of course) the BreakFree this September for $19.99 and grab a few extra tips for $9.99 per pair.

A Man’s Tool Chest from A Woman’s Store

My wife loves Lowes. I don’t so much. Since there is one just down the street we often enter the doors of this store to “look around”. I’m pretty sure they only change things at most every season, but mostly it’s always the same, so I am not really sure why we need to “look around”. However, last night we dropped in just as they were closing, because Katie needed to replace a tape measure that she lost.

We grab the tape, and as we are walking out I spy what could possibly be the best thing I have ever seen at Lowes. It is the brand new Kobalt 53″ Stainless Tool Chest. This thing is massive. Not only that but there is a built in powerstrip on the left side, casters that support up to 4000lbs, LED lights, a XM/iPod compatible Pioneer sound system with 3 way speakers, and a mini fridge. I could now live in my garage. (If there was room). With tunes, light, and a fridge, why would I ever need to leave? I’ll be saving my pennies.
