 At the Starbucks near my house -- granted, it's TINY -- you're never out of range of an outlet.  Or nearly never.  But like I said, it's really small.  Heading there now, in fact.  I'll check my facts better. Interesting info about wireless charging.  Thanks.  I've never really understood the point, personally.  But maybe that's just me.
 LOL!  Nice :)
 Couldn't agree more about the improved sound.  I have a lot of trouble sleeping, and basically need some music to help me fall asleep.  I just put on some Diana Krall or something similar on my Air, and the sound is actually fairly impressive considering.
 Worried the system could turn out too easy to hack.  And the last effin' place I want someone gaining access to is my hotel room.
 My worry isn't my not being able to open my door, though. 
Yeah, nothing could go wrong with that.  Nope.
 An opinion, pretty much by definition, can never be proven. "Baseball is better than football."  Prove it (or disprove it).  Now, if someone said something like, "Baseball is a more popular sport than football in the US," that can easily be disproven by any number of metrics.  But that's because there are FACTS involved.  But, "Marlowe was a better writer than Shakespeare, " while being a fairly unpopular and fringe opinion (which, nonetheless is still held by some)...
 A (fact-based, scientifically arrived at) approximation is NOT THE SAME as an opinion. For the past two Presidential elections, for example, I avidly read Nate Silver and Nate Cohen, followed various polling over months.  In 2008 I correctly predicted the results in 49 of 50 states.  In 2012, I was 50 for 50.  So, in the last two elections combined I have a 99% accuracy rate. Now, let's be fair: It really isn't difficult to predict what's going to happen in CA or MS....
 As others have pointed out, that was not the point of the iPhone.  The fact that the App Store opened in July 2008, more than a year AFTER the iPhone was released should be a fairly clear piece of evidence.
 Swear, before I checked who posted it I was this -->this<-- close to hitting "Reply." :)
