The biggest problem is not finding a charger space, it's finding one that someone hasn't left their plugin hybrid attached to ALL DAY, instead of just the 30mins it actually takes to reach 80% charge.
Mitsubishi Outlander drivers seem to be the most common culprit.

The Nexus 6P IS a Huawei.
I often book cinema tickets online, and they come as QR codes the drone at the entrance scans onto a work phone to tell me which screen / row / seat (Which I already know).
Shell, here in the UK, have a phone app that lets you use Paypal to fill your car.
Each pump on every one of their forecourts has its own QR code, which tells the company which pump you've used, and therefore how much to charge you.
Which is weird, as petrol stations generally also have a sign telling you to NOT use your phone!
I think you missed a few zeroes from the price.
More likely, insurance company profits may rise a little without hitting us in the wallet.
There's ALWAYS room for a HHGttG quote. Have an upvote!

Some nations use the comma as a decimal point.
"Why is UK doing a spaceport in UK, nearer equator makes more sense?"
So... British territory near the equator... at Latitude 7° 56' South, that would be Ascension Island* then?
Already home to an RAF base and an ESA tracking station.
*most appropriate spaceport name... in the world!
World hears "whitewash"
"And if he gets to be Home Secretary he'll go native. They always do."
I rather suspect his sentence will be suspended, he may get ankle-tagged for a few months, and then offered a job in Cheltenham.
"I think perhaps it's best that the government is not responsible for judging that one."
Because they'd have to start by banning themselves?
Nope. I don't have a violin small enough for this!
Tracking ANYTHING at somewhere north of 30,000mph is kinda tricky!
Sadly, not voting is NOT voting no!
One if by land, two if by sea.

A catalog that just a couple of years ago, was one over 700 pages of components, is now a mere 200 pages of naff gadgets & phone chargers.
After the planned course correction, the probe will be heading in a different direction, so the debris becomes completely irrelevant.
(until the debris ploughs into an approaching starship, starting an interstellar war for which we are allegedly unprepared)
As I understand it, the bet was with Harlan Ellison, not Sir Arthur C Clarke.
(But I agree with pitting this judge against any organisation that preys upon "The weak of mind and fat of wallet")
Just let me get it out of the boot.
(When driving, my phone is in a pocket of my work bag, in the boot of the car.)
IF there is an actual Pascal-chipped consumer GPU coming, I think the reveal won't be until E3, in June.
