Overview

Now you'll never lose your work or miss the end of a DVD movie because your battery runs out at 35,000 feet. The MagSafe Airline Adapter will keep your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air juiced throughout your flight. Sleek and light, it works with in-seat DC power ports available on many commercial airliners — both EmPower ports and 20mm ports (using the included adapter). Check with your airline regarding availability of in-seat power ports.

Because it's a MagSafe adapter, you'll continue to enjoy MagSafe convenience just as you do at home or work. The magnetic DC plug ensures a tight connection and enables a clean break from the power port if there is undue tension — preventing your MacBook from being pulled off your tray table if someone accidentally trips over the cord.

Important notes:

* Using the MagSafe Airline Adapter provides power for your computer but does not charge the battery.
* The MagSafe Airline Adapter is not compatible with automobile power ports.

What's in the box (note: there is no box, its in a pouch)

* MagSafe Airline Adapter with EmPower connector
* 20mm adapter
* User’s Guide

Compatibility

* Works with MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air computers
* Connects to in-seat EmPower and 20mm power ports


Here's the deal ... if you can use this, its yours. I bought it only to discover that none of the JetBlue fleet are outfitted with the connection this needs and I rarely fly other than JetBlue.

I would love to give it a good home ...

wordless wednesday

one man's spam ....

I bet you had no idea this is MY lucky day!

Yes, it is.

I got an email from a recently deceased relation's attorney Mark Overmax, Esq.

Lawyer Overmax sent me the following:

Attn : Dear

I am Mark Overmax an attorney at law. A deceased client of mine, that shares the same last name with you, died as a result of a heart-related condition in May 25 2007. Leaving behind a deposit valued at $15.7 million dollars. His death was due to the death of all members of his family.

I want you to assist in distributing the money left behind by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank.

The bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin. My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client.

This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, you can also contact me at my private at barr.overmax@gmail.com

Best Regards

Mark Overmax Esq

Imagine how hard Mark has been working to find me .. the relation who shares my last name died in May, 2007.

Oh maybe Mark has dial up and has been waiting on connecting to me since then, I better get back to him ASAP.

I do have some small concerns tho, I am a little worried that since "His death was due to the death of all members of his family." there might be some family medical issue I am not aware of so I am going to schedule a check up and make sure I dont have this condition.



I was however cheered up when I got this sweet email from Mary ...

I have to say that I was surprise to receive Mary's email and I cant wait to see the pics, can you?
