anyway, I think that it is pretty cool but some of that stuff is dumb, like a usb powered laptop? Why would you want a USB powered laptop? You have to have a computer to run another one, that is pretty dumb when you can just put it into the wall.
You can always get a power outlet to USB adapter, connect it to the wall, and plug in your laptop with a double sided USB male. That would essentially make it a universal charger, no longer will you need to buy expensive chargers from the OEM.
I'm not supporting this spec, but there are pros to it. Otherwise they wouldn't bother.
