I'm not sure if anyone is interested but the EU has passed a law that forces all cellphones to use the same charger instead of multiply different versions, tech companies have till 2017 till the law can be enforced with EU Countries being expected to put this into their local laws and already Nokia, Apple and RIM have come forward backing the law, the charger in question is I'm assuming going to be a Micro-USB socket charger. The EU are saying this law is being put into order to reduce waste, costs and hassle for users. But do we really need this law? Personally I'm on the fence with this, on the one hand it'd make things easier if all tech uses the same sockets but then again on the other hand it sounds like the EU is forcing people into making a decision that at best is just a small annoyance. Lately the EU has had this attitude of "Do what I say and if you don't like it then too bad" So what does everyone think? Are the EU evil phone overlords or do we really need this law? I know there's a few guys in the US so basically if you're unaware (which is cool, I'm not all that clear as to how US Law works) basically the EU stands for the European Union which is a lot like the UN or the US Government but for Europe. I might be a little biased against the EU since the guys seemingly have it in for England, they just ignore us or force petty rules onto us like giving prisoners the right to vote "Hey guys you know those guys who broke the law? LET'S LET THOSE GUYS VOTE!" Yeah that makes all the sense in the world SIDE NOTE: I did think it was equally petty for my country to refuse to have EU flags up, you'd think we would given we're in the EU so it's not like it's one-sided.
