Anthony Gallippi, CEO of BitPay, has started paying his gardener -- in BitCoins.
...
BitPay, a Florida-based company, is seeing rising interest in BitCoin, the fledgling digital currency that is a small, yet interesting wild card challenger to traditional payment systems.
...
Still, there are a lot of questions around the future of BitCoin, and its exchange rate has seen wild fluctuations from a high of around $30 to as low as $2. Gallippi admits the situation "is like the wild west right now," and it remains to be seen how governments will craft policy around BitCoin or how financial institutions will deal with a rising competitor.
...

Most intriguingly...

3 out of top 25. This calls for wild speculations but as you said, pick any 3.

If I were to pick the best: amazon it is and we will never ever need any other argument when asked if bitcoins really exist.
The "worst" pick would be Wikipedia donations (finally) but (excluding the non-english sites) or some other technical corner application. Anyway I'm curious to see it actually come true. There is too many reasons for speculation and announced announcements in bitcoin for my taste.
