Cool Invention!

OK, so maybe everyone in the world already knew about this. But, for me, it was the first time, today at Schiphol airport, where I got two rechargers (wall socket and USB) for the price of one. Pretty handy.

Comments:

All you had to do was buy 2 iPads, retrieve the chargers, buy 2 USB cables, and throw the iPads away, and you'd have ended up with the same thing.

Those are great. I saw them first at JavaONE. Java.net had them as free giveaways (for US wall sockets).
