Every now an then you run across something that makes you think; "Holy shit! I didn't know they made these things!". You buy the thing and it turns out exactly like you thought. I had a problem. We rebuilt our kitchen, and the contractor thought "Hey, it'd be useful to have an outlet at the … Continue reading USB outlets
