Aside from some obvious misconceptions in the intro

Yeah jeez, he (the interviewer) doesn't waste any time getting things wrong does he:

The currency is already plagued by security concerns. Its value recently underwent a near collapse, which, as it turns out, was caused by fake Bitcoins flooding the market.

LOL, It takes real skill to get so many things wrong in one sentence.

Russian fraudsters attempted at earning cash in exchange of literally nothing during June 2011, playing with the BitCoin system of virtual money. They employed a fresh strain of malware to introduce an authentic BitCoin file to compromised PCs so they could spawn the online currency within personal financial accounts.

Looks like they just changed the title, which unfortunately also changes the link:

Interestingly they said they will be using bitcoin to test gpu cards going forward as part of their suite of benchmarks.

What phone client was Bruce using in this video?  Mine don't look like that.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

He was using a web browser, most likely it is an Android. You can PM and ask him about that.

The CNN article was really good and impartial. There is an upcoming RT segment on Bitcoins http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZx0wvkyWbs (Read the description) Lets see if they beat CNN at the news here too. Smiley

Another pretty reasonable article.
This bit is a little dubious:
"They also say if you want to make payments or send money online it’s easier to set up than PayPal or a credit card, processes transactions faster than either, and all without any fees or paperwork."

Hardly dubious; this is one of Bitcoin's primary strengths. Have you never sent or received bitcoins?!?

"process transactions faster than either" is dubious unless you're completely happy to consider the transaction 'processed' with zero confirmations.
Many merchants won't be. It depends on the amount I guess.

"all without any fees"  - while transactions seem to be accepted with zero fees right now - some people have already had problems with this. Sometimes a zero-fee transaction can appear to stall. This is another reason why 'processes transactions faster' is dubious.

With software improvements, and perhaps special services to allow fast small transactions - then 'faster' could be a reality.
"all without fees" is not likely to be the case long term.

So.. I still say it's *dubious* to claim these properties now. Already there are people on the forums who have expected these properties due to previous such claims, and have professed their disappointment on discovering the reality.
