I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

1. Active pickups have less wiring (they wire isn't wrapped around the magnets as many times) so it gives better sound, but it's very weak, so there's a built in amplifier to boost the signal.
2. Batteries go inside the guitar.
3. They last a long time.
4. Depends

it's not better sound (that's up to someone's preference), just less noisy, so it's easier to use more gain...
