The Socket Seekers: NY Times on the Hunger for Power Outlets

This may seem like a given to most of us with laptops, but the New York Times makes a good point in saying there's not nearly enough power outlets in today's supposedly high-tech airports. I'll second that and say that the epidemic isn't limited to just airports, but everywhere. The New York Public Library has gone so far as prohibiting people from plugging their laptops into available outlets in its "Wi-Fi" room. (I should know, I got scolded for trying to connect). The reason? "Security." Free Wi-Fi is good, yes, but what's it to me if I don't have a power outlet to connect to. Anyone else experience similar frustrations?
