Every newbie, I do mean every newbie, complains about the loading of the blocks on initial download of the bitcoin software.  Can we have some soft of info bubble, popup, or something, anything to let newbies know they need to wait for the blocks to download?  I think it would be very beneficial for newcomers.

Technically bitcoin is doing a bang-up job.  It's time to start working on user-friendliness, which has a ways to go for the average Sally.

0.009 BTC too confusing?  Use mBTC instead!  Details at www.em-bit.org or visit the project thread to help make Bitcoin prices more human-friendly.

This has been brought up before, but having Bitcoin.org offer a real live non-self-signed HTTPS certificate would still also do well to bolster credibility.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.
