Re: iPod extension cable source

said by Stacy:

If you've ever purchased an Apple wired keyboard it comes with a white USB extension cable.

Does the extension cable still have the 'notch' so it only fits with the keyboard and not a 'normal' USB connector?

Yeah, I guess so. Never noticed that.

Yeah, and you can easily squish it flat with pliers, so you can use it as a regular extension. I've done it tons of times over the years here at work.

I bought a Apple branded 1 meter USB extension from OWC »eshop.macsales.com/item/Apple/5910240C/ to hook up my external Super Drive, and it didn't have that notch (even though if you look at the picture it shows the notch). I had always assumed that it was that cable from the keyboards ... apparently not.
