Possible Powerline socket coming

En-Twyn, a London based company showed off this combined power socket / dual network socket at CeBIT. The network ports use the Powerline technology, so the only connections on the back of the socket are the standard power connectors. For those using Powerline networks, this looks very interesting – it saves wasting a power socket just for the network, and looks a lot neater. En-Twyn have said the network and power sockets can both be used at the same time. Right now, this is just a prototype, but one we hope gets put into production this year.
