comment What is the origin of the eject symbol?
Tape decks were generally horizontal, and when you pressed the eject button, the tape would pop up out of the deck. Perhaps the line is the deck, and the arrow shows movement out of the deck.

Also, SSL does help prevent security breaches by making it way harder to eavesdrop.

comment Is shaking a device to refresh an accepted behavior?
Pull to refresh makes the most sense when a user is looking at the top of a time sensitive list. Pulling down is like trying to scroll to things newer than the top. Which is exactly what happens. It isn't as intuitive in other situations.

I think I will go with full wildcard support on this. Thanks! I'll also have a context menu for setting the filter type.
