Poorly designed USB connector

Has this happened to anyone else?

I purchased a Nook Color 3/25/11 and repeatedly had the same problem. After 3 weeks, the NC stopped charging altogether. I brought it back to the B&N store and the sales clerk said the metal USB connector at the end of the cable that plugs into the NC was loose. She wiggled the metal connector with her finger and then gave me a replacement cable free of charge.. I have never had that problem with any other USB cable for any non-B&N device. It appears to be a bad design. The replacement cable has not had a problem. . .yet.

My forefingers are crossed.
