Cool Thing of the Month

USB Wall Outlet

The USB Wall Outlet
Can it really be true? Has the (electrical) world has finally come to its senses? Yes. A semi-universal standard for low-voltage devices has emerged: the 5V USB outlet. Forget about those cumbersome and ugly "wall wart" transformers. Need to juice up your phone, music player, digital camera, or whatever? Just plug it into your nearest USB-enabled wall outlet. Nice! Available at FastMac for $19.95.
