Phoning it in

Posted by Matt Cipriano | No Comments

CNET News has some good News for us.

Apparently the big 5 cell phone manufacturers (Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and LG) have decided to nix all of their previous phone chargers and agreed to go with a universal micro-USB charger for all of their future phones.

This is good-ish news. This means that in the future when you are at your friends house and your phone is dying, you will be able to borrow their charger to juice it up. On the other hand this means that with that next phone you buy, any charger that you currently have will become obsolete.

It will probably take a few years before anyone notices a significant difference and is grateful for it, but, somewhere down the line this may actual make life just that much easier.

    As with Anna Karina, we prefer to remember the U.S.A as she was in the 1960s.
