From the "More Cool Stuff I Want" Department ...
As many of the comments have hinted on Gizmodo, this might be a sign that we, as a culture, are getting horribly lazy.
It could also mean that we're sick of carrying around six #$%@ adapters on trips lasting more than two days.
Will we ever see a day when a USB-like standard exists for powering gadgets, a universal power connector, as some have called it? The important consideration is to have a universal power port, not an adapter that fits to multiple devices.
I'd pay extra to have all my devices compatible with such a standard.
In support of this post, I just now Googled "standardized power." Oddly enough, ZDNet's George Ou recently wrote about this same issue. Be sure to take a gander at some of the comments that follow.
