Design Vs Styling

This was a reference to our Thursday class when Greg mentioned the fraying of cords.  The image from an Imgur user shows the comparison between cords.  For a quality driven company like Apple, even they  overlook their smaller details. Here Apple decided on having a slicker form than to have a more durable one. Planned obsolescence or poor planning?

  1. That happened to me last week, my Apple charger burned out and almost exploded :(
    Luckily i got a warranty when purchased my macbook, so they replaced my burned charger with a new one no problem :)
