You can still get these. The hard part is finding one which will fit
properly unless you are willing to bodge it together a bit. Just search
for "C14 EMI" on eBay and you'll find hundreds of them. Maybe you've
seen them already and were just surprised by how small they have become :)
You can also just remove it, and (safely) wire in a fixed power cord.
