In following with my current research into the mobile phone platform, I've come across some bad news.

Chargers use energy even without a phone attached! I've now unplugged our charger, which for years has been plugged in and apparently using electricity 7x24. What a stupid design.

It's all a thing of the past, though. According to this source the current era of dedicated phone chargers is a thing of the past. The vendors are moving to micro-USB as a standard charger. A fine idea!

Now what to do with all of the chargers we've got piling up....

A civilization is a heritage of beliefs, customs, and knowledge slowly accumulated in the course of centuries, elements difficult at times to justify by logic, but justifying themselves as paths when they lead somewhere, since they open up for man his inner distance.
