People who say Bitcoin a currency don't know shit about it, Bitcoin is more like gold or silver (read this http://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf). gold prices have jumped up and down million times in history. Bitcoin might be overpriced now (or maybe not) but it is a brilliant technology that will make our life much easier.

Internet needs a new protocol for sending emails ASAP, And It's not really hard actually. Here is a simple example how it should have been: Say Server X wants to send an email to server Y 1- X initiates a connection to Y and asks for private key 2- X encrypts email(including meta data) using Y's private key 3- X sends the packet and closes the connection

People will buy anything that's one to a customer.
