Yes, the guy who designed your house back in 1964 SHOULD have added USB ports. He's probably very sorry.
But there's a good chance nobody told him they existed, just like they didn't tell that architect in 1985, or that architect in 1991, or that guy in 1997. Possibly some guy in 2007 was considering it, but considering that some brand new homes right now don't have USB ports in the plugs... well, face it. New technology takes forever to catch on.
But, on the bright side, you can easily plug this Vulcan Portable Surge Protector into your standard wall outlet and improve what they got wrong. It'll still give you a normal outlet for a clock radio or computer or lamp, but it'll also give you two USB ports, so you can charge that iPad or phone or run your little glowing Christmas Tree that they told you to stop bringing to work. They can't tell you what to do at home, can they?
Maybe one day house plans will change as fast as technology does. Until that day, the Vulcan Portable Surge Protector will be there to help fix what they didn't think to install.
