I think you're right that many of the machines in mission control are Sun based. At the very least it was an OS that I wasn't completely familiar with when I worked in there a few months ago during the SpaceX mission.
It's real money, but it's not like it's flushed into space. It's paid out to scientists, engineers, and administrator in the form of salaries. NASA seems bad because that number seems really high but when you compare it to the rest of the government it's a tiny drop in the bucket
Actually NASA lets their engineers have a choice between a windows machine and an Apple machine. At least in JSC the apple machines are running Snow Leopard
  Yep it charges the sales tax that you would have been charged if you bought a physical copy in the city that you live
Seems like a smart way to make the nano thinner

I think just the name Ashton Kutcher does it for me
For those who still think that TSA is anything more than security theater designed to make you feel safer without actually doing much of anything. I give you this http://gmancasefile.blogspot.com/2012/01/tsa-fail.html
Why would you attribute the filmography to Sorkin when he isn't a director? I assume your beef with that would be with David Fincher who actually directed the thing.  Sorkin is a fine more than capable writer who should be able to write a decent movie
