I have read the messages on the message board about this topic, but have a few more questions.
Why is it that not all new electric appliances have 3 prong plugs? Infact, most of the plugs that I have plugged into my sockets only have 2 prongs.(ie..tv,vcr,lamps,etc.) Does a three prong outlet do anything for an appliance that has a 2 prong plug? If so, why 3 prong plugs?
