burnt-magsafe.jpgA Flickr user named Rheauchyr has posted a set of images of his burnt MagSafe power connector from his MacBook Pro.

When I came home today, I found that the magsafe connector was melted. Thank god the cats disconnected the Macbook pro during the day (they were probably chasing each other and tripped over the wire).

UPDATE: 2006-0316, 11:35 PM:
It should be noted that this is clearly an isolated incident. According to Digg, Apple requested that the poster remove the Flickr image set after they replaced his MacBook Pro.

I am sorry if you do not see the image(s) you might have expected to see.
The reason for this is that Apple, after dealing with this issue, kindly requested me to remove the pictures at least until their engineers had a change to investigate this issue. Since Apple support has been very helpful and already is getting me a new Macbook asap, I’m happy to answer their request.
For those whose immediate reaction is along the lines of ‘censorship’ and other big words: I don’t care.
