Apple is Starting $10 USB Power Adapter Trade-in Program on August 16

As a part of its trade-in program, Apple will be exchanging carbon copy adapters for the real things at throwaway prices. After controversial incidents in China involving a fatality due to electric shock from a fake adapter, Apple has decided to provide bona fide adapters. All unauthorized USB adapters will be handed in at Apple Stores. They will be handled and put to good use via recycling. Starting from August 16th, the program will go into effect. At a discount price of $10, the right stuff will be handed over to the customers. The offer is guaranteed until the 18th of October, 2013. Users have to bring along the iPad, iPhone or iPod with the ersatz adapter in order to get an actual substitute.
 
Two very serious accidents involving human life took place in China. Both had to do with usage of counterfeit adapters for Apple products. One was a lady who died from electrocution. And the other was a man who spent ten days in a coma before being revived from his injury. The hidden dangers of using third party USB adapters became obvious and so Apple began what it calls reparation and prevention efforts. The USB Power Adapter Takeback Program is precisely meant for this purpose. The fact is that buying cheap products that have not passed through rigorous tests of safety can only end in accidents and mishaps.

Apple states, "Recent reports have suggested that some counterfeit and third party adapters may not be designed properly and could result in safety issues. While not all third party adapters have an issue, we are announcing a USB Power Adapter Takeback Program to enable customers to acquire properly designed adapters."

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
