Ok, so maybe that's a bit dramatic but it could have been worse. This is my second powerbook power cable to burn through as shown in the pic above. When my first one went through over a year ago, I was so busy I just binned it, thought that was lucky and bought another. Has anyone else had this, or heard of this? At Â£70ish a pop they're not cheap, and it's pretty dangerous really, bit of smoke with a little flame and fizzing sound. It could easily have set my shoe alight, with Me in it!!!!!! Tim, I know you 'know someone' who works where they sell em Have they seen much of this before? anyone else?
