A thread to talk about out dated every day items. I'll start. Maybe its just me, but there are very few receptacles in my apartment that dont have a power bar, because i have so many electronic devices plugged in. Phones, tablets laptops, computers, tvs, video game consoles, lamps, clocks, routers, modems, fans, etc. I have 4 receptacles, 8 outlets total. It just doesnt cut it these days. And why are the plugs so damn big still, when the wiring is so small. Is it time for a change in this near hundred year old design?
