An ode to Apple’s MagSafe

The¬†MagSafe wasn’t the best connector because it saved your expensive laptops from crashing display first to the office floor when that klutz, Pekka from accounting, stepped on the cord.

The MagSafe wasn’t the best connector because when you were late for the 7:45 AM bus to work, you ran out of the kitchen so fast, coffee in hand, that you tripped on the cord and didn’t fall flat on your face.

The MagSafe wasn’t the best connector because it would never snap and break inside your laptop, no matter how hard or at whichever awkward angle you pulled it.

The MagSafe was the best connector because it was fun. It was effortless. It gave you wonderful audible reassurance when you connected it: *klak* everything is OK again. It was that technological wizardry that only Apple can create. It was magical.

The new MacBook Pro is solid and better than ever, but I’m sad to see the MagSafe go.
