"What I cannot understand is how politicians fail to understand what a future Kenneth Starr is going to do with data like this."

A heating tax
A sleeping tax ...
and if you don't pay the sleeping tax more than 178 days in a year, you are living elsewhere and you need to pay a secondary habitation tax.

"I don't know where you're flying where you're getting to go for $29.95..."

From Germany to Ireland, from Northern France to Spain, from Belgium to Italy, everywhere where the low cost airlines fly.

I just checked Ryanair.com a minute ago and there are flights for 19.99€ (27.19$) from my nearest airport Frankfurt Hahn to Milano(italy) or London(GB) Montpellier(France) or Venice(italy)

"I will not have a job come tomorrow" who would probably toss what they think of as a $200 phone not understanding the subsidy prices."

Indeed. And those people also don't understand backups.

"This is far more common then you would imagine... The fact it's being applied to a subway system in this manner is pretty novel."

Every railway that deserves its name uses something like that.
Even if their 'underground' lines are shorter than a subway, which is the only distinction I can see.

Also usually when you make 'noise' at night, above-ground is usually more problematic than 20 feet below the street level in a tunnel.

"The TSA is probably thinking that if the battery in your gadget doesn't work, it might not actually be a battery...so, just to be on the safe side...."

Most people can show them the battery, that would be easier.
Let the power problem just be a matter for the iOS users.

"All those free phones, tablets, laptops, etc. - it is great to be working for TSA!"

Yeah, people will dump their 500-700$ 'precious' just to get on a 29.95$ flight.

They will renounce the flight and the airline will have to remove the baggage already on-board.
Same procedure with the other 5 people with that problem in the line.

It will be fun to watch.

"Neat. Could be used during surgeries instead of anesthesia, or could be weaponized to disable enemy combatants."

Nobody would want that. You want to wound (not kill) the enemy soldiers, to bind enemy medics, food, transportation, logistics, field hospitals, pensions and lower morale.

If you zap them and go away, they will still be there fighting against you. If you take them prisoner, it's YOU who has to provide medics, food, transportation, logistics, field hospitals and get plenty of bad publicity on top.
