Just one mention of Bitcoin - but nice to see it made the list in a matter-of-fact manner.

FPGAs can accelerate simulations, encryption and decryption tasks, Bitcoin mining, and can even be used to brute force passwords.

Ya, they are just assuming their site visitors either know what bitcoin is and the few that don't should know how to use Google.
