I could not dig; I dared not rob:
Therefore I lied to please the mob.
Now all my lies are proved untrue
And I must face the men I slew.
What tale shall serve me here among
Mine angry and defrauded young?

If you think that's bad, Vodafone placed a microwave relay next to a Christmas tree farm and were shocked when the whole local service failed in November due to the fact that the trees grew.
Yes, Christians SHOULD be held accountable for the Westboro Baptist Church. Anyone who thinks their bronze-aged fairy-tale is justification for prejudice deserves shunning, mere satire and ridicule are allowing these stupid, deluded idiots to get off lightly.
If we expect radical Muslims to emancipate themselves from mental slavery then we must do the same, anything less is just hypocrisy.
Ban religion and the intellectual cowards who practice it!
When it costs 5-10% to send a transfer overseas using Western Union, but a few pennies/cents to achieve the same thing using Bitcoin you can immediately see the real value, it exists in the opportunity cost of using another method.
I thought that was obvious.
$280 is the price on the failing MtGOX site where no-one can withdraw any money making the transaction volume effectively zero. Any weighted average, the method used to calculate the volume of other commodities, will not include the Gox price so the price is actually $652 or £389
But that doesn't make for a cataclysmic headline so journalists ignore it.
In a word Instagram, it isn't a business app but it was one of the biggest gaps. There was a large number of third-party alternatives, but folks wanted the real McCoy. I don't think my food is that interesting but people are change averse and clutch at reasons to avoid change.
There aren't that many app gaps any more, and the size of the app store is no measure of quality. Three hundred Justin Beiber fan apps make for nothing but noise in any app store.
As far as business goes WP8 isn't in the running until VPN becomes possible, and that from one who really likes it.
My Lumia 820 with WP8 fully implements the SMS Bluetooth protocol allowing my car to read SMS messages to me while I'm driving as well as having the option to dictate replies. A complete deal maker / breaker. This doesn't work at all with Android or iOS and until it does I won't be moving away from WP8.
