Sure you can teach a coal miner to code. For example:

A variable is like a bucket. A bucket that can hold different types of coal. You can glue several buckets together to hold several pieces of coal, this is called an array of buckets. Just remember the first bucket is called bucket number zero.

Someone invited me to use it a few months ago. A quick google search turned up some horror stories about security problems and privacy issues (some people reported that it downloads and spams your phone's entire contact list), so I took a pass on downloading it.

Probably right up Facebook's alley, though.. :)

I've never bought an Apple product (and never will), but for pretty much anything else I might want that has a future release date I can pre-order it and get it on day of release. Do Apple not do this?

They do, but pre-ordering doesn't get you an article on Slashdot or make you a hero amongst your friends.
