Westinghouse in favor of universal power adapter

Westinghouse has just announced last week that they would be building a universal power adapter called the Green Plug to enable all of your devices of the future to draw DC electricity through a single adapter. The aim is to create an adapter that won't end up in the landfill along with the obsolete gadgets.

It's not likely for them to get support from a lot of electronics manufacturers because many of them earn additional revenue from the sale of adapters as spares. HP sells it's adapters for notebook PCs at roughly $80 a piece and that's pretty much the norm among notebook PC vendors.
