Huh -- mine (Mac and Dell) always break where the cable meets the bit that plugs in to the *computer*. But this is pretty cool.

That's where mine (Lenovos) always break, too. Usually, but not always, I can successfully solder them back together, but the only preventative thing that's ever worked for me was sticking a piece of reinforced plastic tubing over the whole distance from the plug into the computer to the ferrite bead (with an ID smaller than the bead or plug, so it doesn't slip out of place, but just holds that whole section rigid-ish).
