When I first started traveling for business a few years ago it was an eye opener that there were no outlets available to plug in a laptop. Even today, 2006, its still not a lock to find a outlet. I’ve seen ‘laptop lanes’ but I think they’re the exception, not the rule.
I only travel about 100 days a year now, but in the past it’s topped 300, and the situation varies from bad to WTF-bad depending on the airport.
There’s probably a micro-niche idea here: Set up a small, bloggish site that reports the location of electrical outlets in major airports and support it with AdSense. Where the *hell* did I put Nick Denton’s phone number…. ;)
