If you haven't made it to Target to swoop up the new John Derian collection yet, grab your keys and fire up the engine! There's still a chance you'll be able to find a few items from the New York-based decorative artist's line for the retail giant.

As electronics evolve so does design. The iPads, iPhones, iPods, Droids and the like that are taking over our lives are also taking over the desktop with a mass of noodle-like charging wires.
