In two blocks time the difficulty will be down quite a bit

Blocks   151198
Difficulty   1468195
Estimated   1204386 in 2 blks

How will it affect the price of the bitcoin?  Also are we able to mine more bitcoins in a shorter time?

That's not luck, that's people who turned off cause it was unprofitable turning back on because after this drop, they are back in the black.

Uh, Mr Potato Head! 50% More hash power than has ever existed on Bitcoin doesn't magically turn on at once within an hour.

Uh, fella! All sampling inaccuracies aside, do you think those numbers are simple variance and there was no new power added to the network after the difficulty change? That it went from 12% down to 92% up in a couple hours?

I can't picture hundreds of people waiting at their computers ready to start mining right at difficulty change.

Difficulty has gone down 20% tonight, but trade rate has gone down 25% or more since the last difficulty change. If mining was not profitable for them then, it still shouldn't be.

 estimates are quite wrong after a difficulty jump/drop. it should be ratger simple to create a better algorithm, though.
