    Regarding your discussion on BitCoin. There are some ways that this currency is fundamentally different from physical currency and even from previous forms of virtual currency that make most of your points incorrect. I can’t easily explain everything in a short comment so I HIGHLY suggest listing to episode 287 and the follow up episode 288 of the SecurityNow! podcast that gives a fantastic breakdown of how the system works. They are mostly neutral on the ethics and come at it from a technical perspective that proponents(myself), rabid proponents, and detractors often gloss over so they can push an agenda.

    I ain’t trying to be “that guy”, but Apple did not ban Saga #12. Comixology, the company that provides the comics to Apple, came out with a press release last Wednesday admitting that they didn’t submit the comic to Apple. As of April 10th, Saga #12 has been on the Comixology iOS App (Apple).
