My Trackpad’s rubber foot broke off. Rather than paying some crazy amount for a replacement, I just decided to fix it myself.
After much poking and prodding, I finally came to the conclusion that this was just an ordinary piece of rubber awkwardly glued to the inside of the trackpad to make it more difficult for people to replace it without making it look horrendously ugly.
I came to the conclusion that it was pretty crazy of Apple to not give me an easy way to repair this thing without making it look ugly. So I had to up the ante a bit and bring in something crazier… Crazy Glue, that is. At the end of the day, Crazy Glue and I had triumphed over Apple’s attempt at making me pay full price for a replacement… so what if it’s ugly?
