WTF of the Day: Apple

 

My friends will remember that fateful day in early 2010 when my magnetic power cord fell in my cup of Green Monster Odwalla. Acting quickly I pulled the cord out from the spirulina smoothie and stuck the end in my mouth, sucking out the goop.

OUCH!

Yeah, I really wasn’t thinking. But my cord managed to work at least a YEAR after that. Two days ago, it suddenly crapped out. My last Mac is a few years old, so it’s at least 2 generations of power cord back. No bueno. I gotta get a new cord, or beg my friends for a little “juice.”

80 dollars, really Apple? What the fuck? And the expensive cord has an average review score of one and a half stars! Most of the reviews bitch about the price, but the most troubling thing is the multitude of negative reviews from users who have gone through multiple chargers over the course of the last year. If the charger is going to be pricey, it should at least work. Shit!
