What I find amazing is that they don't even teach cursive in the public schools (here anyway). In elementary school they teach them this so-called pre-cursive, which is just printing with little curl connectors and a few loops on stems. It is not nearly as readable as straight printing is, in my opinion did nothing to help with cursive and was basically a waste of time and effort. Almost all the kids have abandoned traditional cursive and since they were never truly taught...
 I would go so far as to say that giving up our freedom in the right to privacy is giving up our public safety. I do not believe in what Snowden did. I do believe that our government needs to be more honest and somewhat more transparent about what they do - but don't just create another group/agency to review what needs to be kept silent and what the public is allowed to know.  This notion of a backdoor is stupid - if it is invented by man it can be broken by man.
He always knew how to knock out some good stuff on the guit-fiddle - problem was in his day it was much more difficult to get your music played anywhere (not that it is not still quite a feat today) without having some kinda freak show shit going on e.g., Lou Reed, Squeeze, Tubes, Bowie, Alice Cooper (earlier), AC/DC. The tiny pimp act worked great for him -- he was one of those artist like Marilyn Monroe,Tina Turner, etc... that became a hit in the gay community and...
Excuse me but the context at the time implied it was from an iPhone not some other brand. I think you would do well to qualify the equipment  next time (don't mean to come across like a jerk - just a suggestion).
Not necessarily the case. If it is a requirement for electrical connection be made then we have a problem NASA. If it is something else like a non-visible optical sensor then many cases could work with that as well as RF emitter/antenna e.g., the iPhone 6 series went from the phones sides being multiple antennae to no discrete side pieces so they put stripes across the back that I'm sure many think were for aesthetics but are actually plastic embedded antennae. 
 Way back in the "olden days" (as my daughter would say) of the eighties I used the venerable old X10 system to do some "home automation". I had a device sold by them that allowed you to write control routines for different zones/rooms. It was not fancy and it certainly didn't use iPhone, etc  but it did quite a bit. The 'server' (more a controller) had static memory that maintained the routines you wrote for it -- you initially wrote using a Mac program (or a PC) and...
"...and has generated $30 billion for developers...."   Ah, Apple keeps 30% and developers get 70%. Although there are industries and companies that work that way Apple does not rape the developers like that.
No kidding -- I would rather not be in either fight but since standing up for our rights and freedoms (here in the US anyway) is what this country is all about. A relatively small group of people got together in the early 1770's to hash this out -- the govt (at the time UK since the US was colonies) was ruthless at stamping out any freedoms sought by the rebels including killing, plundering, looting, etc... for even talking about such things. They became much less tolerant...
 So what happens if you have both a King and a Queen?   
So am I to understand that the phrase used in the UK currently is the Queen's English? Would make sense as there has not been a sitting king in the UK in my lifetime. I was referring to the phrase used as the title of a book and historically (in some literature) but english is a dynamic, changing language.
