In November 2011 I bought a brand new iPhone 4s. I lost my original cord and bought another Apple USB cord from Walmart about 8 months ago. When I got home today I noticed that my cord had many cracks in the rubber that were flaking off. By gently rubbing the rubber, it all came off exposing a metal cord. I tried to tape it using electrical tape when I first noticed the cracks. Is the quality of the Apple accessories going downhill due to mass production? I sure hope not...

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.1
