Will a high power USB connections make any other power port obsolete?  Engadget thinks… maybe?

Last week the 100W Power Delivery spec was approved for both USB 2.0 and 3.0. That’s ten times what Thunderbolt can do, and it means that you can charge up your laptop or power most any peripheral via Universal Serial Bus. Naturally, the new specification relies on beefier cables to deliver maximum juice, but we won’t have to go replacing all our old wires — it includes a means to check attached cables and devices and set the voltage and amperage accordingly. Perfect, that means we won’t have to carry around bundle of proprietary power cords when we travel…

It would be pretty cool to be able to travel with JUST a few USB cables to charge all your gadgets.  Standardization, its a good thing.

As a follow up to my previous post on Google’s “Project Glasses” (found here), Engadget has found one of Google’s founders Sergey Brin actually wearing the glasses in public.  I guess Sergey prefers the tortoise shell look over the all white mock-ups seen previously.  
I stand by my previous comment, I dont think they are too bad, and I am more than a little excited about them.  Im sure, should they reach production, the first models will be out of the price point of most, but I think if the technology is further developed, and the price becomes affordable, I dont think I would be the only one that will be interested.  Now I just want a model that either clips onto, or somehow integrates, my existing glasses.  Lets be honest, most of the people that would be interested in these will most likely already be rocking a large pair of specs… am I right or am I right?
