    Once they actually start shipping, I will definitely buy one.

    That's an awesome idea with excellent execution to boot. I've seen half-ass versions before, but this is the real deal.

    As long as they pass UL approval I will buy two or three.

    That's pretty badass. What would be awesome is if you have a smart house and you connect your computer to a wall USB outlet, you can control lights and garage doors from your computer.

    Good idea, especially in this day and age, but is it surge protected better than a good quality adapter? I'd hate for anyone to lose something like an ipod through a random power surge. I bought a couple of surge protected multi-outlets from Home Depot for my TV/DVD player/receiver etc and if they included a USB port as well, now THAT would be awesome.

    People probably shouldn't be charging their Ipod or whatever in the middle of a bad storm in the first place.

    Hell yeah! That is awesome. Once the outlet gets approval and is released, I will purchase a few and place them throughout my home.

    yeah i could definitely use one of these. i'm tired of having my 10 year old sneak up and plug her ipod in while i'm on the computer, interrupting whatever i'm doing with itunes popping up.

    Can't wait to get one of these. Hopefully they'll eventually come with more than two ports.

    It'd make more sense if it was a gfi outlet with the usbs added, because then you'd at least have surge protection.

    Power surges don't need storms to happen, especially in larger cities where the power grid is already maxed out. But you're right, I'd unplug everything I was charging (and that wasn't protected) as soon as I heard the first crack of thunder in the distance.
