Why does every phone and tablet still come with its own charger?

Chargers suck. And we have the technology for universal wireless chargers. So why don't we use it? http://goo.gl/U3m7Jf

In the future, your phones, tablets and wearable computing gadgets won't come with chargers - they'll use inductive chargers built into desks, kitchen counters, bedside tables, cars and other surfaces. Just placing a device on any convenient surface will charge it.

This future will be great for us lazy people, and there are environmental benefits as well.

We have the technology. So what's the holdup?

Here's why wireless charging is more awesome than you think -- and why the technology is stuck in the mud:
