    Don't compare with Apples though, it's ingenious *and* original, and won't be fighting for patents on the particular stance you take when you plug something into a wall socket

    Is it just me who doesn't like the idea of these things? Especially the fact you can "stack" them and have 3 plugs in one, I can see these causing fires if i'm honest. I just don't like the idea of playing with electricity

    Everything is getting smaller, thiner etc, yet when I pack the ipad into its pouch, the power lead is flat (usb) yet the plug is bulkier than the lot combined, I say this is where it is going. Afterall, its only a few cables connected behind.

    I don;t see the problem clearly it's passed all the required safety requirements to be sold in this country, which is pretty amazing for any new product these days

    This design could definitely work. The number of times I've seen cracked screens due to a notebook and plug being 'thrown' into a bag and then the back of a car.

    i'm only interested if it folds up when you stand on it... As we all know, standing on a plug is more painful that childbirth
