It always seemed a bit cumbersome to me, but when Google announced end of life for their Reader, I've moved to Thunderbird with my feeds and it works well enough. But, I might be a special case - I no longer work on more computers than my laptop, so I have no need for a web-based reader.
This is all true, but I can imagine that high-current charger and battery connectors get standardized and everyone has one charger for all their devices at home and at the office. Perhaps even vending-machines that charge batteries? If it only takes 10 or 20 seconds, why not? Heck, if it only takes a few seconds, I can have a shared charger in the building, so me and my neighbours use only one.
1. Why would there be any connection between entertainment system and car's critical systems other than GND and +12V?
