I found this beautifully made site which details the current legal status of Bitcoin in each country. I would not count on the accuracy of the service for making any investment decisions but its a decent starting point. Check it out here

I think the Oculus Rift VR headset has really made big improvements in the VR space. One of the key things it has solved is motion blur which caused discomfort for users previously. They have a developers SDK and kit which I am tempted to run some tests with. I see some interesting applications for interactive storytelling and also training specific skills. Oculus website here and some info about its potential from Wired here

Sony’s SmartBand seems quite versatile and a decent competitor to FitBit and the JawboneUP. It will be interesting to see how this goes and also if they add iOS support soon.

I really like this presentation from Reed Hastings who is the CEO of Netflix. The presentation is all about the company culture that he tries to build and its dramatically different from many companies I have seen in operation. Read it here

A very interesting presentation from Leah Buechley from MIT on paper based electronics using conductive ink. I believe this could be used in future packaging for smart notifications when products are running low.

The videos from the Startup School 2012 talks are now live. They include interviews with Mark Zuckerberg, Hiroshi Mititani (Rakuten) and I really liked Patrick Collison’s talk on Stripe.

I like this Kidle application called KindleGraph which allows authors to personally inscribe readers digital books on request. I found about about it from Brad Feld’s blog as he was constantly being asked to sign kindles!

Im wondering if anyone is interested in pulling together a team (or teams) for AngelHack London on the 10th and 11th of November. No big idea yet so I was thinking on they day we could just pick a problem to solve from the Internet Wishlist and try to solve it within the 24 hours. Any takers or other suggestions?

A really cool JavaScript games development competition called JS13KGames have announced the winners. Its a games competition where the developers need to keep the code under 13 kilobytes. I really like number 4 called SimLand which is a version of the classic SimCity running in the browser. Check it out here

Its concerning to read that Mozilla’s FireFox latest update has to be pulled due to security/privacy issues as reported on the BBC. It seems the browser allowed sites to see the users entire browser history. I believe people are too quick to deploy new product without extensive testing on something as important as a browser which is the transport system of the internet. Also the users who have upgraded should start thinking twice about adopting so quickly.
