I like it when notorious technology writers cannot figure out how to use the simplest tech accessories. Adrian Kingsley-Hughes:
I’m not sure what it is about Apple cables, but the brilliant white rubber coating the company uses just doesn’t seem to be all that robust. After about six months of use — you know, the regular stuff like plugging and unplugging it — the outer starts to get soggy and discolored, and then over time becomes more and more fragile, until one day it starts peeling off, and then it is game over for the cable
I can see problems for baboons who cannot care for cables, but geeks should, amirite?
