I am only concerned about power when outside almost all day and keep
checking/writing mails. I somehow think that using the keys for extended

I am more interested in this:
http://www.splashpower.com/ (they're going to show off the product in
CEATEC this week)
How about keitai charging table at the restaurant, so your keitai will
be refreshed by the time you finish eating your lunch? And your felica
will be deducted for the power sucked by your keitai...

Technology is dominated by two types of people: 
Those who understand what they do not manage. 
Those who manage what they do not understand.
