Okay, I lied. There’s a new comic up today.
Today’s toon was partially inspired by CES – but largely inspired by the frustration I experience when it comes to identifying power adapters. I’m sure most folks have a box of adapters lying around their computer area, just like I do. I’m afraid to toss this box, because I may need one of those adapters at a later date.
At the very least, I suppose I could have labeled my adapters – but isn’t that something that manufacturers can do to make things a little easier for consumers? Some manufacturers do a reasonable job with this, but I feel that the vast majority of companies don’t even bother (to keep their costs down).
I’m all for standardizing power adapters – just to make life easier for the average consumer (read: me). What say you, on the subject? Sound off below!
