Broadcom chairman says single charger standard needed, AllThingsD says

Without a single standard for chargers, the Internet of Things will not boom, Breoadcom chairman and co-founder Henry Samueli told AllThingsD. While there are currently at least three competing standards for chargers, the parties setting the separate standards are holding talks, and they should adopt a single standard some time in 2014, the website quoted Samueli as saying.
