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!

If there is a question mark in the headline one can almost certainly answer: "no!"

Gawker, Gizmodo, etc...

They like to make 'click-bait' article titles when they have absolutely nothing to say about the topic at hand. I've never run into a larger collection of mouth-breathing idiots, fervent in their desire to be posting 'first' about something, instead of stepping back, getting some perspective or research done - then posting.

I avoid their tangled hype-web at all costs.
