Re: losing laptop is stressful

Well, what about "laptop" rentals in conferences? At least for me, this would make some sense. I have all my files in the cloud, and most of the time you simply check email and edit a few documents (while in a conference or event). This would allow you to travel without your most sacred device and have an easier trip.

Outlet outrage

I have to admit I was a little surprised when I realized traveling without my laptop would make me a little crazy. As someone who grew up with a TV with 3 channels you had to change manually and and single landline phone (a party line, no less!) you'd think I'd be over myself (as one reader astutely puts it.) And I definitely have the outlet issue in my home, especially in the home office.  I really like these kinds of human-interest surveys, excpet when you recognize yourself in the results :-(

"Losing a device is more stressful than losing a wedding ring"

especially because we are both emotionally and mentally invested in the device. Probably if study could correlate the "happy married life" to "stress with losing a wedding ring" then they could find a high correlation factor.

True. I've done both in the past (added amn outlet and a new circuit), but never just for the purpose of supporting my charger!

At home anybody who is competent to be an engineer should not find it difficult to add an additional outlet, although adding anothger whole circuit is a bit more effort.

At an airport, why should anybody expect to charge up for free? It will just be a short time before there are outlets available for a small fee for a half hour's use. In the interim, GET OVER IT!!! people have lived for centuies without having to depend constantly on their electronic toys. Consider that you might even be able to have an interesting conversation with the person seated next to you.

@elctrnx_lyf: honestly, it is not a easy answer, I think improvement in components is good, but in parallel people need also a step forward in friendly recharging as per their "nomadic" attitude for business or laisure raison.

The revolutionary low power devices will be definitely welcomed by all kind of user group. But are we sure the ultrabooks really consume lesser power than the smaller sized laptops.

Well, if we consider for a few minutes how was/is tech's evolution and where we are with regard to power recharge - speaking for myself - we will find that good steps made in tech are not so good power supply; we still need adapters, we still need sockets for plug...I've have experienced power recharge by near contact for my mobile handset and laptop's battery, it worked very good, but nobody tells about and the picture is again as per Barbara's article...who knows real reasons?

Outlet outrage at home

You don't have to travel to have outlet outrage. Try to find an available power source if you want to relax in the family room and watch TV while weeding out your e-mail. Between all the gadgets attached to the TV, and competition from other family members seeking their own power source, you can have all the same inconveniences at home!
