IF we're going to get mad at Google for roaming around in a car picking up SSID's than WHY can't we get mad at Zynga for taking whatever information they have about me and making money by selling it?
Because Zynga only gets the data that YOU give them; you ultimately have control over how much information Zynga gets about you. Don't want them to have information about you? Don't use their applications.
Now if you don't like the law, think it should be changed, the answer is to let your representatives know. They are the ones who make the laws, they can unmake them.

Can you please explain why you feel this statement suggest the student hasn't grasped the substance of the lesson?
It depends on whether or not you think the student approved of the lesson. If he is endorsing the exercise, then his statement is along the lines of "We weren't actually being terrorists, we were learning about it, it's a good idea and negative reactions are overblown" and he has clearly grasped the substance of the lesson. If he was disapproving, his comment was more along the lines of "We shouldn't be pretending to be terrorists in order to learn about terrorists" and he missed the point of the exercise. So, it depends on the context of the quote given by the student.

...why would any law-abiding resident ever volunteer to scan their irises into a public database, and sacrifice their privacy? GRI hopes that the immediate value the system creates will alleviate any concern... And he has a warning for those thinking of opting out: "When you get masses of people opting-in, opting out does not help. Opting out actually puts more of a flag on you than just being part of the system. We believe everyone will opt-in."
If you're a law-abiding citizen, you have nothing to hide, and thus couldn't possibly object.
what the FUCK
...longer than 15 minutes at a time, it's not a good idea -- you'll hand will get sore in no time.
Maybe they anticipate that their users will have lots of practice making repetitive hand motions for extended periods of time and will be able to avoid this problem. Can't imagine why, though.
