This is the main problem for now... without it there will be no bitcoin user base for any services...

Stuff you can't buy or easily find using USD. Artisan-crafted by community members or at least quality stuff bought local, then distributed.

Leather wallets, coffee beans, alpaca socks, custom-made jewelry, Fibonacci table cloths, ornate wooden bowls, home-crafted assault rifles, dehydrated weasel dicks, honey, and many varieties of cheeses!

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

Financial services. My favourite would be a method where I can pay my bills using bitcoins.

Example: I have a bill for 499 EUR, the bank account number, due date and reference number. I supply that information to some company, and pay the company 499/mtgox_spotprice*1.01 bitcoins. The company pays my bill on due date.

The advantages? I could pay my rent and visa bill with bitcoins - essentially that would mean that I could have a "bitcoin credit card".

I don't know for what price someone would be able to offer this kind of service, but it would be certainly very useful for people who want to hold their money as bitcoins.

I wonder if Bit-Pay could add a feature like this...

Example:

1)  You have a bill to pay
2)  Bit-pay implements a "bill pay" option where you can enter in the address of your bill payment
3)  You send Bitcoins to Bit-Pay, Bit-Pay converts Bitcoins to the currency of your choice
4)  Bit-pay sends out your bill payment in the form of a check
5)  Any residual funds are either refunded to you (minus a small transaction fee), or they are stored and carried over to the next month

I'd say the security has the highest priority, then everything else can come after.

Well, if they would be able to implement it, it would be damn cool. Of course it is only for US, but still cool (I am european myself).
