Hypothetical scenario:
Pretend you own a laptop computer. For argument's sake, let's call it a Smackmook Schmo.
Along with a computer, there are, of course, peripherals. Some more, and some less essential.

Apple has reduced the # of essential peripherals, laudably, to 1: the power adapter. Now, the power adapter is a fairly smallish piece of work- again, laudable.

Unfortunately, smaller things are easier to lose. But hey, if you're in my neck of the woods, there're something like a thousand Apple stores in driving distance...
...care to guess what they can't bother keeping in stock inb the county I live in? Hint: it's a computer peripheral.

Come the fuck on, people: this is a total no-brainer.
  • You are kidding me.
  • when i went to work for Shmapple? one of the first things I did was wander around empty cubes...
    and steal power cords.
    I have since given them all away.

    how sad is that?
  • E-mail me. ipford@gmail.com

    We might have some in stock in our warehouse in Memphis. If so, I can have one overnighted to you, or we might even have one in stock at the store in Torrance.
    • Thanks for offering! I wound up driving to the next county and buying one already, as I had to actually, you know. Work, today.
