The Thistle - An E-Newsletter of Scotch College, Perth, Western Australia

Update from the ILT Department (Tech Centre)

We have seen an increase in the number of Apple power adapters being handed into the Tech Centre, owing to the family pet chewing through the cable. Unfortunately, broken cables are not covered under warranty but we are able to exchange them for a charge of $89.00. There are several theories as to why rabbits, cats and dogs are attracted to phone cords, cable TV cords, etc. One theory is that they are attracted by the vibration from the electricity. Another theory is that the electricity makes a noise that is audible to the pet. Or could it be that the plastic that enclosed the electrical wires tastes good? Who's to know, whatever the reason, we want your pet to stay safe and would recommend that the power adapters are kept away from them.
