It's been announced, delayed due to "safety concerns," and pushed back some more, but it looks like the FastMac U-Socket outlet is ready to make itself available to the world. This outlet, which provides standard (U.S.) 110V power along with two handy USB ports for your electronic device charging needs, is officially now available from FastMac.
Apparently demand is high because although shipping has started today, the site is giving a 4-5 week turnaround time for new orders. Apparently no harder to install than a regular wall socket, this will be a great addition to any wall which is plagued by the huge AC adapters for things like smartphones that we all know and hate. Order one now for $20; if you're lucky you'll have it in time for Valentine's Day.
