iPhone app limitation by Apple?

I'm wondering if there are Apple-imposed limitations that would prevent this no-brainer iPhone app from being created. I'd love to be able to go to one place on my iPhone to turn off/on all the power-sucking tidbits: WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G, etc. As it is now, you have to drill down through all parts of the interface to access that stuff. Does Apple allow an app to access the WiFi on/off function, for instance? [more inside]

Sending passwords over open public wifi connections

Lately I've been spending time at our public library studying and I find myself needing to connect to their open (passwordless) wifi network with my laptop. My computer is fully patched and I have a firewall so that's seems ok for general internet, however I need to log into some non-https websites and I don't want my passwords to be sniffed (especially my school email account). Is there a (/free/) way I can safely/securely log into non-https websites from an open wifi network like this? Thanks for your help.
