Unless you're working on files directly on the USB drive (why?), just plug it in, transfer the files, unplug and keep charging.  In the off chance that you're really down to the end of your battery and need a charge, Macs will go into deep sleep mode when they hit 5% battery, which should be plenty of reserve battery power to do a small file transfer to/from a fast USB flash drive and then continue charging right away.  You're making up a problem where there isn't one.
Even fandroids can't come up with original ideas...  
 I was in a bar recently which had a clock that did exactly that -- just to mess with the drunk people. Having a Salvador Dali inspired watch face where it melts slowly would be nice too.
 Ah, I see.  It's when any iOS system process tries to use SSL after connecting to the rogue WiFi network on startup.
 I thought EAP might use SSL as one of the options, but I guess not.  It'd only be at the VPN layer (after the initial connection) where you'd see SSL being used.  Trying to figure out how they're able to crash a device with an SSL certification on connection then... guess I should read the technical details of the attack. EDIT: Actually, EAP-IKEv2 might be susceptible (not clear)
In this particular case, it's when connecting to a WiFi hotspot -- which is a hardware device.  Hence why Apple needs to have a fallback to SSL (it'll be a while before all hotspots are upgraded).
Yeah, that's the problem: if you want to be interoperable with most devices/servers out there, you need to keep it in as a fallback.  These types of things don't change overnight -- especially if they require firmware upgrades or new hardware.
I'll keep a WiFi jammer handy in case anyone tries this on me.   If I'm in a really bad mood, I'll harvest the hardware information about their hotspot, search for known vulnerabilities (almost all cheap hardware has them), and reconfigure their hotspot.  Then I'll use it to bombard NSA email accounts with terrorism-related text.   But anyways, definitely something Apple needs to fix.  Given all of the SSL-related exploits lately, it sounds like they should have people...
If true, I'll be hanging on to my 5 when I upgrade later this year for situations where I don't require a large phone.
 I've actually had the reverse experience with Xcode.  I've used it since the Project Builder days, and it was horrendous up until about version 3.2.  Version 4 was a rewrite, and so I found there were a fair number of bugs (plus code indexing was terrible).  After about version 5.2 it has been much better.  This is on a massive project with C++, Obj-C, and Obj-C++ code (plus a couple of smaller Obj-C projects which use C++ libraries). As for VS, everything just feels like...
