    Not eternal, but functional

    I have to replace the 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter for MacBook Air, today, because the wire that connect to the charger is frayed. I got years of great service, and yes, things eventually break. The magnet always worked exactly the way it's supposed to -- trip over the cord and it releases instead of bringing the laptop crashing to the ground. I wish the cord part was modular, so I could just replace the frayed wire section, but it's not. And that's the price of constantly improving technology; for me it is worth $79 for the R&D and fantastic product design (and function!) that makes Apple products so wonderful. Oh, and I can either have it sent to me, for free, and get it in about 4 days, or mosey on down to my local Apple Store. Which is beautiful, and has hands-on displays of other stuff I want, and get information from the intelligent, knowledgeable, friendly staff. Or maybe are a FREE appointment at the Genius Bar, where they will explain what's wrong and fix it...
