What a pile of Bull-dung! Tech evangalelist says
The Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport is now charging for access to electricity
This is Unfair and inane. Unbelievable
This is the WORST idea I've seen in a while. Cities should not allow their airports to penalize business travelers by forcing them to pay for power. It's insane!
Over time, It will surely become more difficult to find open outlets in airports with Smarte Carte power outlets installed since that would cut into the vendor's profits. Contractually, the airport will probably have to waste money putting caps on non-Smarte Carte publicly accessible outlets. Ever seen a FREE luggage cart in an airport with Smart Cartes installed?
