I was saying to my wife the other night, "Why do we need different chargers for our phones? Would it kill these cell companies to come up with a standard so I wouldn't have to desperately search for the right phone-charge cords in a sea of wrong ones?" The answer to my lament came this morning: Believe it or not, they're working on it.

Today, telecommunication trade group GSMA announced at its 2009 Mobile World Congress that it has brokered a deal with the world's leading handset makers to come up with a standard for charging cell phones. LG, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, and Sony Ericsson have all agreed to use the Micro-USB technology. If all goes well by 2012, most cell phones will use the same kind of connector to charge their batteries.

Now, if we could adapt the same standard for MP3 players, video cameras, The Nintendo DS, The PSP, digital cameras, etc. we'd really have something!
