Worst. Charger. Ever

I just wrote a pissed off review at Apple on their page for the MagSafe Power Adaptor. It is the worst adaptor ever. It has 2 out of 5 stars based on 290 reviews. My review has been censored by Apple because I used the word Crap in the title. The MagSafe adaptor is magnetic (hence the name MagSafe) so that if you trip on your cord, it pops out. This is not always true. Here's my review (Not yet published):

Worthless.

I have had my MacBook Pro for a long time, and I have never been more angry at Apple in my life. First of all, this charger is weak. It breaks every month. Right now I'm holding the charger in a special position just to get it to flicker off and on. Second, it's supposed to pop out if you jerk it. It does this ΒΌ of the time.

Worst. Charger. Ever.

(I had to change some of what I wrote because Apple didn't like it.)
Dear Apple: Please recall the MagSafe Adaptors.

Your quaint little blog has some of the most interesting entries of any personal blog I know. (Laughing.) Get with it, Apple. If only they knew whom they were dealing with.

Wow, for a kid of your age you have the mindset of an adult. How did you get to be so smart?

I've had mine for quite some time, and I've had no problems. Take care of it, and it will take care of you.

jake,

you are so on the $! I HATE MY MACBOOK CHARGER. and i didn't bother to tell Apple because i am convinced they think they are Superman of Everything.

i miss my iBook charger terribly; i lost it and had to buy a non-Apple charger, which works fine and ISN't MAGNETIC (what a BRILLIANT load of ..poop, can you say poop to Apple?), but it doesn't have the light on the end to make me feel better and re-charged.

love your weblog. i too lived in the traingle area. now i live in jersey.

but Good For You, telling mr. jobs his magsafe power adaptor is a piece of poop. sorry if you don't like that word; crap is better than poop. and if i used any more words i'd be swearing which is very very bad.

Sorry to hear you are being censored. Sounds pretty "cool" to me. I just bought this adapter for a MacBook Pro that our group shares for competitive research purposes. I had to purchase one to replace the old one. Go figure. Maybe it's time to look for a new laptop and new brand ;)

I know a LOT of 9 year olds and I'm struggling to believe this was posted by a 9 year old. I'm not saying it's impossible, just implausible.

The ice skating entry...sure. The MacBook entry...not so much.

What kind of a parent would let their 9 year old have a blog?

I would never let my nine year old, no matter how smart he is, have a blog. I certainly wouldn't let him say "pissed", either.

With that being said, if this really is a nine year old kid and not some stunt, you have a very bright future.

The kind of parents who, I assure you, watch. everything their son does and writes. And who are not concerned about a word like "pissed."

The author of this blog is exactly as represented and writes every word of this blog. The author's parents read every post and every comment.

I'm having a difficult time believing that you're nine years old. You're not one of those Leap Year Babies, born of February 29, are you? The kind who only counts the years that have a February 29 in them, thus making you 36?

I was distressed by your use of the word "pissed" also. Then again, it's not like you're breaking any barriers. The original Bad News Bears from the mid-70's had a whole cast of characters who spoke in a much cruder manner than society is accustomed to.

I am relieved to know that your parents are keeping tabs on your blogging. That's better than most parents of this generation.

If you are 9, you're a lucky, smart kid. I wish you well.

Mike
