CP talks about the problem finding power for your laptop, not wireless.
Slashdot reported on this and it is spot on.
This was particularly telling for me when I was in europe. I didn’t have all of the power adapters that I should so I had to chain them together at one point. For example:
US plug -> US/UK adapter -> UK/Euro adapter
One of the adapters was so bad that I had to wrig up something so it kinda tied itself to the plug, and wouldn’t just fall off when I plugged in my iPod charger. What a pallava!
I even have one of the iGo systems which lets you interchange ends.
Back to power for mobile. I thought I read somewhere a year about, that companies are working on wireless power. How cool would that be :)
