New Alley Electrical Outlet Program

            If you are low on cell phone power and far from home you have a new option. Com Ed is using new technology to place electrical outlets in unexpected places. Wooden poles, park benches, brick walls, nothing is off limits. Where to wait while your device charges though? Alleys aren't always the safest places to linger. An anonymous source told this writer that they were working on drinking fountains next. There is a liability issue though. Young passerby could potentially electrocute themselves. So this will likely just be a fad.
