    From what I've read, MS didn't make the power cords for the units. A third party, that they've refused to name, is who did it. MS has accepted responsibility, though.

    according to some websites I have recently visited the power cord is a smoke sceen for the actual problem. According to various websites there is a problem with some of the soldering points inside the power supply or something like that. The new cord will keep you from catching your house on fire a definate plus, however because all they are fixing is the cord if your power supplied missed up your xbox would still be fried, where that wouldn't have been the case if they would have taken care of real problem. I guess microsoft just wanted to take the cheap way out.
