So I wondered, just how easy is it to get a gun? A semi-auto, 9mm Beretta 92FS with "No scratches or dents, very slight wear from extremely light usage" would hit me for 338.69 bitcoins. At the current Bitcoin/Dollar exchange of roughly 9-to-1, that's a little over $3,000.

Your Deloitte link is a big fat 404.
Same here, can someone re-upload it? If you opened it and forgot to download it, it should be sitting somewhere in your temp folder.

They changed the date in the URL after publishing it. Fixed in OP.

Banks and regulators have been warned of a major rift that is emerging in the payments landscape, spurred by rapid smartphone adoption and the growing acceptance of complementary global currencies which fall outside traditional sovereign government regulatory frameworks.

A new Deloitte report: The future of exchanging value, uncovering new ways of spending, examines how new payments models and alternative online currencies are already taking hold and canvasses the threats they pose to traditional payments players.

Today Facebook Credits, Bitcoin and even loyalty or reward credits are emerging as complementary currencies that can be used to purchase online, ore real world goods and services.
I thought facebook was ditching its credits system.. but they seem to be mentioned in the underlying deloitte report as if they're an ongoing thing. (?)

started with frequent flyer points and store rewards
programs has evolved to the point that a global virtual
currency has been developed: Bitcoin

Bitcoin has, in effect, created its
own private gold standard where the money supply is
fixed rather than subject to increase via the printing press,
bringing with it all the associated problems of money
hoarding, deflation and depression historically associated
with fixed currencies.

I think it's a boringly crafted strawman/bogeyman designed to appeal to conspiracy-theory-susceptibles.

edit: if the quote from BCB is legit, then it was an interesting idea... but unfortunately it seems that parodying conspiracy-types is like parodying creationists. No matter how hard you try to parody - it's indistinguishable from the real nutbaggery.

Despite growing popularity in the shadier parts of the internet, the anonymous, peer-to-peer currency Bitcoin has yet to break into the mainstream ó but a new effort by German art student Max Albrecht may help to raise its profile.

Of course, given the current state of the European economy, they may be better off sticking with the virtual currency.

The only place we might be seen to be at fault in my view is finishing our bitstream and not getting the Icarus replication quite perfect. The bitstream is a couple of weeks behind schedule but does have great promise.

All I can say is that we sold this product as a concept going into a development program and it is exactly that. I don't think we could have been clearer on that to potential customers ...

Hi Yohan,
I think you could have been a bit clearer on this. I may have been a bit rash in buying this, but it was described as a board 'specifically for Bitcoin' - and I guess it wasn't in my expectations that I'd need to closely follow a 68+ page thread on the forum to know the state of things. Perhaps because I have only been checking a couple of times a week - I'm still not clear about what the board is currently capable of nor how to achieve it.

Currently I'm running mine stock at around 100MH because the processes for eeking out a bit more looked pretty problematic, and nowhere near the target 800MH yet anyway as far as I could see.
As it stands I don't know if I'm supposed to be monitoring the page at http://www.enterpoint.co.uk/cairnsmore/cairnsmore1.html, this thread,  or some other thread for a completely 3rd party bitstream solution (??)
