Can catching a power cord on a laptop destroy it, by tugging your machine across the stage and crashing to the ground? You bet. I’ve had a few “tripping over my PowerBook cord” moments of my own, thankfully none of them resulting in major disasters. So it’s some comfort that, among Apple’s more hyped announcements, the company has come up with a clever way to solve the problem: tug on the magnetic MagSafe connector, and you pull it out. Your gig is saved — or it would be, were there not a bunch of other cords around. In other news, you can now savely disconnected power by pulling on the cord end, just like your momma told you not to.
