So I need help with some ideas on how to clean up this mess of cables/power cords and devices. Thats a cable modem, apple router, small switch and network drive with lots of cable splitting going on there. Any products out there that can harmonize this?
For that collection of gear I would just do a quick cleanup like so:
1. Remove all connectors from devices so you can move them freely.
2. Attach power strip securely at the back of the shelf (secure to the shelf, the bottom of the shelf above it, or the wall - whatever you like)
3. Place devices neatly on the shelf or two in a way that is pleasing to you and allows for access to the cables without too much difficulty. If a device allows hard mounting (the switch probably does), consider securing it to the shelf.
4. Attach one cord at a time to each device, coiling any extra cable and securing it with Velcro wraps.
I would also consider adding a vertical piece of wood to the shelf with the gear to separate it from the Cheetos and cereal.
