| Some more notes from a quick local discussion:
| o Charging with USB means you can use a *standard* USB cable to charge
|   it from a computer. How often did you forgot your charger at home
|   when traveling?
| o It also means you have *one* cable for both, power and data. We

Hey I like USB power in, so much so we spnt the morning trying to figure
out how to have two of them.  Preaching to the converted :-)
