How did you write such a long and seemingly well thought out response when you know so little about this subject? The mining is essentially the transaction log of all bitcoins. In addition to that being a beneficial side-effect, it's an extremely elegant solution to the problem of a centralized clearing house.

I'm responding from an airport lounge after two weeks in a different country with no permanent office. I do this every three to four weeks. Any more questions?

I was referring to the apples to oranges argument of desktops to laptops that this article seems to make. I understand that laptops are portable computers.

This is absolutely ridiculous for 1 reason-- In a court case, the word of the officer trumps that of a citizen if they are in disagreement. Therefore, a camera is the only defense a citizen would have against a corrupt police officer. Obviously not all cops are bad, but retarded laws like these perpetuate what corruption there is.
