So That's Why Apple Recalled the iPhone 3G's USB Power Adapter

Illustration for article titled So Thats Why Apple Recalled the iPhone 3Gs 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]
