Wall outlets for electricity had only a single socket when first introduced in 1930s America. Those evolved to the double-socket or duplex outlet wall plates we now take for granted. Had they not evolved, we would all have extension cords coming from the single sockets to split the incoming electricity, just as connector cables (with splitters) still split the incoming broadband cable signal today. Now more than forty years old, the cable TV industry is evolving to duplex style wall plates for its customers' incoming cable signal.
