PayPal merchants can now accept payments in Bitcoin (via 3rd party payment-processing companies BitPay, Coinbase and GoCoin.).

Love or hate PayPal, they are a colossal player in the online payment space. Now they are giving merchants another reason to stay (or adopt). BitCoin payments. It may only be a baby step, nevertheless it's another step forward for Bitcoin.

This week, PayPal took its first venture into the world of all-digital money. Merchants can now start accepting Bitcoin as payment.

I've been a huge fan of the Ford Vs Holden rivalry for many years now, however i'm really looking forward to next year and the return of Nissan and the introduction of Mercedes to the V8 Supercars championship.

Bring it on!

What's your highest score?

As an Android user, is this the mobile you've been waiting for?
Or as an iPhone user, would you consider switching to the Samsung Galaxy S III? It certainly has it's advantages hardware wise - larger screen, higher res, lighter, faster cpu, expandable storage...

I still enjoy my Galaxy S the first generation. I am going to go to the third as soon as I am eligible for an upgrade.

Did you know there are some species of ants that have transparent stomachs? This can lead to some interesting and creative photos.

Cool, there is this one ant I encountered in QLD, AUS that has a green "stomach" and tastes like a lime. The zip-line guide said they use them to flavor their beer.

A fish eye look at what happens beneath the waters surface when crabbing.
Where I live, you'd most likely film someone checking your net and it would be the last time you'd see your GoPro!

A day in the life of a crab net

Have you ever wondered what happens beneath the waters surface after you set a crab net? Scott Murray gives us a fish eye view.

It's extraordinary pictures like this that remind me why i'm so captivated by all things marine.
 
Tarpon and Silversides, Grand Cayman

This picture was taken at Eden Rock, Grand Cayman. For just a short time every year these silversides swarm caves and swim-throughs at Cayman's dive sites. The picture was taken late afternoon just as the sun was going down. Mike was hiding behind the silversides, low in the rocks. As the tarpon swam through the silversides, they eventually saw him and turned away. Just like you see in the picture.

Have you hooked a Tarpon?
We'd love to hear from you. Simply send a message to +Fishing+ along with some details of the report, pictures or video and we'll share it with the +Fishing+ community.

There's certainly no shortage of "unusual" videos on the internet, this is a tribute to that fact.
