  • One bitcoin is now worth more than one ounce of gold

    One bitcoin is now worth more than one ounce of gold

    For the first time ever, the price of one bitcoin has surpassed the price of one ounce of gold. While today’s swap can be attributed to a good day for bitcoin (up ~3%) and a bad day for gold (down ~1.3%), the big picture is that bitcoin has more than doubled in the last year (up ~185% from a year ago) while gold is essentially trading exactly at the price it was a year ago.

  • Bitcoin is being Bitcoin and spiking 30% this week and 200% this year

    Bitcoin is being Bitcoin and spiking 30% this week and 200% this year

    It feels like we only hear about Bitcoin when the price is either tanking or skyrocketing. And, since it’s currently skyrocketing, let’s talk about Bitcoin! As of writing, Bitcoin is hovering around $745 per coin. It has only been worth this much twice before – once on the way up to the height of the Christmas 2013 bubble, and once on the way down. But since trading at lows… Read More

    Apple’s iPad Update Plans Could Put Gold First And Offer 12.9″ Model For 2015

    Apple could add gold to the menu for the next version of the 9.7-inch iPad Air, according to Bloomberg, and then introduce a 12.9-inch version of its tablet next year.

    Keeping bitcoin safe isn’t easy. If the wild currency fluctuations don’t get you, then it’ll be the exchanges going pop in the night and taking a chunk of BTC with them, or the myriad digital wallets whose security systems failed to fend off the hacker hoards lured by all that traceless digital coin… So why not convert your bitcoin into gold bars?

  • Sure, a £3,500 Motorola phone. Sounds good to me.

    Let’s be honest for a second here: unless we’re talking about the Motorola Droid, which should be on Verizon Wireless within a few weeks, we might as well not be talking about Motorola. It’d be like talking about Real Madrid and only mentioning Granero or Drenthe and not Cristiano Ronaldo or Kaká. (Good, making references that all of 11 people will understand.) But… Read More

  • zzzPhone gets Aaandroid!

    If you’ll recall, zzzPhone is offering “customized cellphones” straight from China with touchscreens and dual facing cameras. In short, these are bargain basement phones with some capacity for upgrade – the base model has been circulating in Asia and Africa for a few years now – and it was running some sort of mad Linux hybrid when we last left off. Now, however… Read More

  • Voodoo's vanity case is the shiniest of them all


    The Voodoo booth was an orgy of exposed PCB, flashy accessories, and some guy with dreds up in a topknot. And rotating in a glass case was this gold thing, which really just seems incredibly impractical, but still awesome. The Blackbird ran Unreal Tournament 3 beautifully, and I killed some fools who thought they could rumble with this. Now, if I were rich, I would buy these products, but I… Read More

  • LG Shine Dipped In Gold And Folds

    Just announced in SK are LG’s two newest Shine models. Details are skimp, but I don’t anticipate anything new or exciting from either.

Details on the clamshell Shine are very scarce and it seems to be unchanged feature-wise. We haven’t even heard… Read More
