The Apple MacBook Pro comes with the infamous, “MagSafe” connector, whose purpose, as I understand it, is to prevent you from accidentally trying to walk away from your desk with your laptop still plugged in. Other than the early-version fire hazard, it sounds like a great idea.
But then you get to the new Apple Cinema Display, which comes with a single wire for connecting to your laptop, that splits into two separate connectors, one, the MagSafe break-away guy, and one a traditional-style-plug, the Thunderbolt. You have to use both (I could have sworn there was a way to get power over Thunderbolt, but maybe the Pro needs more juice than it can provide?), so you still end up with the potential disaster of one break-away cable, and one that requires careful hand-disconnecting. Seems silly to me.
