An Apple iTouch sensor in a laptop need be no more vulnerable than in an iPhone. A jailbroken iOS device isn't much difference than a hacked Mac OS device.
Your solution depends on air resistance. A phone dropped from your pocket or a table top would hit the floor in half a second at less than 10mph. That's too soon and too slow for aerodynamics to have any effect on an object as dense as an iPhone. Try flicking a badminton shuttlecock off a table as a first test of your theory.
Tim Cook expects undivided attention when appropriate. He's also extended Apple's Thanksgiving break for the last several years. I think its reasonable to assume that his understanding of what's best for Apple is different from yours. Your presumption that he's not focused is yours, and it's based on a dearth of knowledge of Apple's situation. It's not fair for you to demand that Tim ignore his experience to share your ignorance.
Consider the possibility that you think these things are distractions because your experiences, knowledge and capabilities are not those of Mr. Cook.
Tim Cook's success is not proof that sexual orientation doesn't matter. Steve Jobs' success is not proof that college doesn't matter. Barack Obama's success is not proof that color doesn't matter. Helen Keller's success is not proof that sight and hearing do not matter. You're intelligent enough to understand this, if you wish.
The best solution depends on the individual, but in general, tilting the keyboard up at the back increases stress on the carpal tunnel. So one might expect this product to cause or exacerbate that condition. Splitting the keyboard and raising the center at the G-H split brings the hand's pronation more into alignment with the rest position. That's clearly not an option for a laptop, but flat layout of laptop keys is better than most desktop keyboards, which tilt the wrong...
Are you sure the "improvement" in typing ergonomics isn't placebo effect? Tilting a keyboard up in the back is not an ergonomic improvement. Let your arms hang at your sides, relax, and note the position of your hands. To maintain that same rested position while typing, the front of the keyboard should be a little higher than the rear, opposite "conventional wisdom". Look at Microsoft's "Natural Ergonomic Keyboard" which comes with a lift for the front of the keyboard....
Google "liquid metal electrical conductivity" for proof that radio-transparency is a myth. Liquid metal is prized for its electrical conductivity.
As chadbag reveals, 1704x906 is a typo. To retain the HD aspect ratio of the iPhone 5/5c/5s, you'd need 1704x960. Someone swapped the last two digits.
You'd be surprised how much silica/mineral grit ends up in your pockets, even if you never visit a beach. If you drive on the freeway with a window open, it's blowing into your car, and onto the iPhone on your passenger seat. Drop your keys on a wet sidewalk and you're likely to transport a little bit of grit into your pocket. Get that grit between your iPhone case and the iPhone itself and you've just created a bit of sandpaper. I don't think there's much sapphire/diamond...
