So, here I am in the ITC Royal Gardenia in Bangalore and I'm impressed. Sure the hotel is world class, the weather is fantastic, the people are great, the food is delicious, but it's the sockets that are pleasing me. Check out this socket collection in my hotel room:
From left to right you've got composite video plus stereo audio, S-video, a VGA connector and PC audio and an HDMI connector. All of these go to the TV in the room (which is a large flat screen). Bring your own video/audio device and you can plug it in.
But it's the power that impresses me most.
First, there's a 5V power socket in the form of a USB socket. It's happily recharging my iPhone right now. Next up there's a multi-country power socket supplying 220V but accepting British, Indian, European and US plug shapes. (Yes, I tried them all).
Update. Some people have asked about data networking. There was an Ethernet and a WiFi hot spot. Both with a 1Mbps net connection.
