Can the strip be "on" all the time, even when it's not outputting any light? I want to have this hidden and only control lighting from the iPhone App.
The problem is that I noticed in some unboxing videos that there's an on/off switch to control the light on/off. I want to control on/off remotely through the iPhone app (or the Logitech Ultimate which controls Hue light bulbs).

In the product information overview it says "choose from over 16 million colors to set the mood". Is this actually the case?
People often through about the "16 million" figure, even in marketing literature. However this comes from number of distinct addressable colours in RGB with 8 bits a primary colour.
2^(3*8) = 2^24 = 16,777,216
Philips Hue technology does not use RGB rather a subspace of CIE. There are many colours in RGB space which cannot be produced by Philips Hue bulbs. There are also some colours which can be represented which do not map well to RGB. I'm sure there are a lot of colours, but how many?
My question exactly.....Can they be hardwired?
If this is to be used as undercabinet lighting in a kitchen remodel/build can these be hardwired into the electrical? If not, can you shorten the power cord part (that has no lights on it) since it is so long?
