What is this irrational phobia people have with wires?
1. A wireless charging pad, like touchstone, sits there just beaming energy out into the ether, only some of which will be caught and inefficiently converted to battery charge. I don't want to hear ANY more nagging about phantom power draw, or unplugging my charger when my phone is fully charged, while people are at the same time pushing wasteful, gee-whiz things like wireless charging.
2. Wireless data. After all the confusion about which of the several incrementally less-insecure WiFi protocols we should be using, and the threat of Bluejacking, why would I want to be beaming my data out into the ether either? It's a lot harder for someone to tap into a copper wire between devices without detection.
