So That's Why Apple Recalled the iPhone 3G's USB Power Adapter Apple's (truly ) massive recall of the iPhone 3G's compact USB power adapter makes total sense now: It's a piece of a shit. The "certain conditions" that'll make its prongs break off are basically breathing too hard, too close, since they only extend about 1/8 of an inch into the adapter and are "held in place with some type of glue and a bit of wishful thinking." If you haven't swapped it out yet (like me), step to it (like me tomorrow). [Mac Merc ]
