  2. You do know apple built flaps into the end of the power brick that pop up for you to wrap the cable..?

  3. Again, those flaps will bend the cable in the exact same place each time, and depending on how tightly you wrap it, break the cable sooner. Sometimes the right solution is the wrong one.

  4. Don’t understand why this video ha so many dislikes! It’s completely accurate! If you were to wrap the cable around the fold out flaps that MagSafe adapters have you could repetitively strain certain points of the cable, causing it to fray, an eventually break. I admit, I’m a absolute Apple fanboy, but that doesn’t mean I assume their words as gospel. Has nobody heard of planned obsolescence?

  5. @matte242 actually, if you put hot water in an ice tray it freezes quicker. It’s a mad bit of science alright.

  6. You guys don’t know how to appreciate things. I’m sure this video helped at least some people. You shouldn’t be this subversive.
