Power plug poltroonery


The New York Times details the lengths people will go to to keep their laptops, cell phones and other gadgets fully charged. Having just taken a couple of plane rides this holiday season, I can vouch for the veracity of the aiport “plug-hunter.” Suprisingly, the Kelowna airport has a nice business centre area with copious plugs, decent seats and a table or two, which I immediately commandeered to watch “The Incredibles” before my flight. I didn’t see much in the way of pluggage at the Edmonton airport, though I got some indignant stares from old ladies as I peered behind rows of seats looking for hidden electro-juice. 🙂
