wall outlet with usb

You really do learn something new everday...or I do at least. :)

Came across a facebook post from another colleague back east and thought I would share. I could be way behind, but there`s bound to be someone else out there that didn`t know you could change your wall outlet to include usb functionality. It sounds like it`s actually pretty easy to install the wall outlet with usb functionality and they seem to be reasonably priced at Home Depot for under $20. 

I even found a website with do it yourself instructions on how to change your regular wall outlets into ones with usb functionality. Looks like it`s best not to change with an outlet that has GFCI because they aren`t compatible. But beside outlets would be a great start.
