What frequency and power is this? Standing in front of a real radar transmitter is basically like cramming yourself into a microwave oven and hitting the power switch. Not so healthy. And he's basically saying that "It's a small radar transmitter"
You're way to gullible.
"Indefinitely" in political terms is more or less equivalent to "permanently".
"He had a different name for it; he mentioned it frequently."
Really? Sounds more like you misunderstanding what he meant.
"You just aren't up on reading comprehension for the stupidest of the Apple Haters."
Apple hater? Sounds more like your own reading comprehension skills could use a bit of attention.
"That is an incredibly ignorant statement. iOS has been since the beginning chock full of battery life optimizations"
Where did he mention iOS/iPhone? He could be comparing two Android phones, you know...
So, to paraphrase yourself: "That is an incredibly ignorant statement.".
Why not just pull the warning labels off everything they use and let the problem sort itself out?
I think this has to do with either patents or copyright. Something that the US has a "very serious stance" on...
"I want the good guys to win."
And you think the NSA and the US government are the good guys?
Agh! The stupid! It burns!
Thank god they're actually trying to support a sensible scripting language as well (goes without saying that I don't like lisp derivates).

You don't work in the automotive industry, do you?
I've seen news stories for (at least) the last 20 years about kids in the US having poor results on international tests. Now you're telling me they've grown up to be adults? Really? And they still have poor results on international tests?
Who is in such a dire need of a quick brush that they need this? Is two minutes too much to spare these days?
1) Massively wastes screen real estate.
2) Doesn't improve readability in the least
3) Usability is out the window.
4) I'm not a web designer! This isn't even my desk!
The onslaught of marketing from the (currently) big sites in the US has actually helped to kill off quite a few sites in other countries. Many of those sites offered the same thing as the big US sites, and predated them by a few years, but were mostly limited to the local spoken language.
As for the "US probably have the world's largest group of creative people", I'd like some of what you're smoking.
Yes. Imagine if everybody had that.
Sure it's well vetted. But consider that you often don't know by whom. Lots of eyes on code does open up the potential for having a few Byzantine generals.
