So far so good. I've only been using it for a few weeks, but so far it has performed identically to the original. Oh yeah, I actually got through 3 replacements for the Apple original, so I have a feeling these copies can't be much worse.
Apple makes beautiful products, but a simple (clunky, black plastic) Windows laptop power charger usually last for 20 years. These fancy-looking Mac thingees are cute toys.
This reminds me of ‘Quality Hotel’ (a collaborative piece by Stephan Mathieu, Radboud Mens, Janek Schaefer andTimeblind).
Funnily enough, Piero Scaruffi wrote:
‘He has also engaged in a number of improvised collaborations that add up to very little: Heroin (Staalplaat, 2001) with Ekkehard Ehlers, Quality Hotel (Mutek, 2003) with Radboud Mens, Janek Schaefer and Timeblind, Reciprocess (Bip-Hop, 2003) with Douglas Benford.’
This is hilariously wrong and idiotic, as Quality Hotel was probably one of the best things Stephan Mathieu et al. ever did.
Anyway, ‘Zondag’ reminds me of it, which is a GOOD thing.
I bought this quite a while ago, and it is still going strong. Two little pieces broke off of the top right and left sides, but it is still held firmly in place. It has also slightly faded, but that just made it look better.
