There have been plenty of times I’ve been stuck with a low charge on my smart phone or tablet, especially when I’m traveling, and have used one of those public charging ports to juice my device up again.

When Liz sent me a link to Furniqi, I sort of freaked out a little because a table that charges your phone is one of the smartest tech innovations I’ve seen in a long time (and trust me, I see a lot).
