    When you're gazing at your lovely MacBook for hours on end,
    Your feet get the chills, and its power brick is your best friend.
    Your toes snuggle up with that warm plastic white,
    And you'll continue gazing... on through the night.

    Mine is usually never on the floor, but if I'm at a friend's house working and have my computer I might warm my toes :p

    Isn't that what cats and dogs are usually used for?

    I save the power bricks to warm my shorts. ;)

    Yes. I often touch the hotter part of the top case to warm my hands too.

    What do you mean? I thought warming people's feet was the whole purpose of power bricks?

    BTW, think of all the energy that heat is coming from. It just goes to show how much energy it's using.

    Cue my favorite line from King of the Hill. :D

    "Dale, you giblet-head, we live in Texas! It's already 110 in the summer, and if it gets one degree hotter, I'm going to kick your ass!"

    Short range heat like that does actually not take that much power to produce -- the power brick is rated at ... what, 60W for the MagSafe on the MB right now? In other words, one incandescent bulb. Were it heating your feet from across the room, now, that would be a different matter! :eek:

    My power brick is attached to the wall with the "duck head" adapter. It is nowhere near my feet. So, no.

    Is that those two hook things that pull out of it? I always wondered what they were for, how do you attach it to the wall?

    You pull out the prongs and plug it into the wall outlet...



    Like this, only this is an airport express but just pretend it's the MBP power brick

    I think he thought you were talking about the hinges that pop out to wrap the cord around (at least thats what I think they are for)

    and no< i never thought to use mine for a foot warmer..but im mostly using mine away from the wall or in my bed

    Some research says EM radiation producing devices (every consumer electronic device) in contact with the skin can be dangerous. I'm assuming the power brick has a pretty intense EMF.
