Its weird, and we may still be a small segment of the overall travelling population, but making it hard for laptop users to plug in is really not a good idea. Especially those who have blogs.
I am at gate A49 at Montreal's Pierre Trudeau airport. Paid the$8.95 for the daylong wifi service. There are plug ins nearby, but they are under elevated table, with no chairs - kind of like bar tables. I don't know why they don't make it easier. I am now sitting in the comfy chairs by the gate, but my power is about to run out.
