I’ve owned a MacBook Pro for a couple of months and the MagSafe AC Adapter is coming a part slightly. The magnet part and the wire that attaches to it are separating very very slightly. I hate minor things like that.
I repaired it with some electrical tape. My nice, white cord has some black tape on it. I know that white electrical tape already exists. I’m surprised it hasn’t been marketed as iTape or iRepair or something like that. I have yet to see that product.
With so many products having white cables these days (like headphones), I wouldn’t be surprised to see simple electrical tape with claims such as “Mac Compatible” or “Works with iPod.”
