        fat fingers, sorry.

        As far as my grammar and spelling goes - polain, english, etc, I'm not claiming to be a professional journalist am I?

      Some part of a gadget which should be reusable or recyclable, but has been designed and manufactured in a way to make it impractical or uneconomic to do so.

      It usually become box litter to clog up garage or attic.

    Wireless charging: Saving the planet through fewer wires, because the vendor specific mutually incompatible wireless chargers connect to the mains by magic, nobody ships tablets with USB cables for data anyway and induction charging is 100% efficient, wasting no energy at all compared to wired charging.

    Everyone also loves having to make room to position a 7" tablet flat on its back on a wireless charger and make sure it doesn't get knocked out of place. Or if the charger clips the tablet in, then everyone must love the extra plastic bulk for something that still ends up physically connected to the device. But not by a wire. Wires are bad now. Yay.

    Gotta love those down to earth folks in marketing.
