How to take care of your cables… these could be exactly my words. I never had a single issue with any power cable at all, I don’t know what people are doing:
I won’t speculate why my friends’ cables are so often yellowed, sticky, etc.
I have to confess, though, I always have to struggle to empathize with people over their cord issues, because in the many years I’ve been using Apple products, I’ve never had a single cord fail on me. Is this extreme luck? I doubt it.
