I want to buy a MacBook Pro with with BTC. That is my goal.

Well you wont be able to buy a macbook if you spend all your coins now, will you?

So basically you want other people to spend their coins now whilst you hold on to yours until they become popular enough so you can buy a macbook?  Grin I'm sure somebody will be selling a macbook for Bitcoins sooner or later. Put a request in the Goods section.

Wow somebody is in attack mode. Didn't I just said I will hold some and spend some? And that I would spend right now if I could buy the things I wanted? Relax ok Wink

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

They sell macbook pro on amazon.  BTC -> Gyft -> Amazon Gift Card -> Macbook Pro sitting on your desk in 2 days...

I hear a lot of people saying they don't know how to spend their coins... There are plenty of ways to buy anything you want with your BTC if you just look around.

Seriously have you looked at gyft?  Gyft will let you instantly turn your BTC into a target gift card which you can spend like cash at the store.  It works beautifully.  You can spend your bitcoins at hundreds of stores this way.  The stores don't lose because Gyft does the BTC to cash conversion so the stores get paid in cash and they don't take the BTC risk.  You get a giftcard at the current BitPay exchange rate which is usually better than if you tried to exchange for fiat, and it is instantly available on your smartphone (or you can print it out) to spend in the store. 

I may have to do that now I guess Smiley but wouldn't be nice to go to Macys and just buy my stuff using the coins? That is what I was referring.

But thanks on the tip, I may use it for regular purchases.

Setup more payment processors that accept coins besides Bitcoin and make it so easy a 12 year old can do it, coinpayments is a good start but I'd like to see more stand alone software come out that are more digital currency friendly oh and definitely seeing some more altcoin support would be good too.

People don't have to buy a load of crap they don't want just because they believe in the Bitcoin.

Don't blow all your 'coins on crap, indeed, but since you've surely got daily purchases to make either way, do as the Bitcoin Jesus recommends and ask the magic question everywhere you go.  Smiley

And you'll probably get the answer "Bitcoin what?" back  Grin.

Did you even look at the website?  That is the whole point. If you ask "do you accept bitcoin" they may say "bitcoin what?"... the first time then next time, "bitcoin again?  i've heard of that", then next time someone asks  "I'd better find out about what bitcoin is since people keep asking about it", then next time ... "Yes we take bitcoin!"

Yes I did. This isn't a foolproof plan on getting places to accept bitcoins. Their next response will probably be "no, we still don't accept Bitcoins".

Well, that was kind of my original point. I want to be able to buy stuff I like but can't find stores accepting BTC and selling those things.

I think it'll be easier just buying with fiat. I'd still rather just hold my coins and see what they're worth in the future. Probably a lot more than what they are now.

Probably, but it's worth to try.
Besides this way there will be more people that has heard of bitcoin, and sooner or later they may get interested in buying or accepting bitcoin in their bussiness.

I myself didn't get into bitcoin till I heard of it at least a dozen times!

It's a good way of getting Bitcoin's name out there and to help promote it, but I'm not going to look like an idiot and keep asking if a shop accepts Bitcoin when they've already told me several times that they don't. If you want to; then great, but I'd find it annoying personally. I always tell people bout Bitcoin, but I'm not going to keep driving it into them like an aggressive salesman.

Of course, I agree. I would ask just once, the thing is to hear of it from different people.

I have done 2 things this week to help advocate bitcoin.

1) My local gun dealer is going to let me build a webstore for him to accept btc as a payment method for popular guns and ammo

2) I went to a verizon store to hear the customer reps feed me full of BS when I wanted to just get my phone service transffered over and price a wifi hotspot he asked what I did I told him, just so happens the owner of the verizon store was in the back and over heard the conversation. In Jan he is also calling me about setting up bitcoin as a payment method for his store. As well as investing into mining hardware and BTC himself.

So the 2 things i've done so far is became a bitcoin arms dealer. Tongue and may be in the works of setting up a privately owned verizon store to accept bitcoins as a payment method. This is all within 10 miles of each other in northwest ohio.

or ditch the Apple control freaks and get a nice thinkpad here.  Install ubuntu on it and be free.

Well, that was kind of my original point. I want to be able to buy stuff I like but can't find stores accepting BTC and selling those things.

I have saved a little but willing to spend some like today if I could find a store.

I want to buy a MacBook Pro with with BTC. That is my goal.

Psst!!  Wanna make bitcoin unstoppable? Why the Only Real Way to Buy Bitcoins Is on the Streets. Avoid banks and centralized exchanges.   Buy/Sell coins locally.  Meet other bitcoiners and develop your network.   Try localbitcoins.com or find or start a buttonwood / satoshi square in your area.  Pass it on!

Well, I kind of like Apple Tongue Wink  Kiss

So don't be mad at me. Why? well, I like a clean setup and I am getting into photography so I think they have the best resolution and color gamut.

I think it super cool to ear you are motivating real physical stores to accept bitcoin. And awesome that you are setting up your own business with verizona, that means we get a deal? or inside pricing? haha jk
