As it turns out, this mundane object has given me a great deal of satisfaction. As I said last week, my power cord broke while I’m in Indonesia, far from an Apple store or Best Buy. However, some YouTubers showed me that these cords can be fixed. I asked around and sure enough a student knew where to get this fixed. He refused to take any money, but I get this repair cost less than even the new generic cords that sell for $25. This sort of savings really satisfies me.
