An Argument FOR Standardization...
...of mobile phone chargers! Please! On a side note, standardizing everything to metric might be a good idea of the US. The impact on US productivity from the confusion and difficulty of converting ounces to milliters and feet to meters is probably never going to truly be known, but I can put a bet that if we, the United States, ditched "Standard" measurements, we'd not only gain productivity, but our global competitiveness would increase tremendously. Not to mention the productivity of the world would improve! And throw in the $$$ it would save me because I don't have to buy 30 different sets of tools! We can dream...Oh and back to the phone charger, I could use the same one I bought 5 years ago today! It'll cut down on waste.
