Class action lawsuit targets faulty Apple MagSafe power adapter


Fire hazard, smire hazard. A class action lawsuit accuses Apple of negligence vis-à-vis the MacSafe power adapter. The suit, filed in San Jose, says that faulty MasSafe design can lead frayed wires and general calamity, which can cause fires.

Apple has already acknowledged that the MagSafe isn’t what it should be, and offers free replacement adapters should you run into any problems. That, apparently, isn’t enough to satiate the demands of the litigants.

The suit wants to extract the cost of damage related to the adapters, plus any punitive damages.

Eh, Apple may and well settle, throw these guys a few dollars, then keep going on with its business. And I say this a disgruntled MacBook user: my MacBook has that bottom right-hand corner crack as seen here.
