Comparing the GCE's pricing to Amazon EC2's pricing for the cheapest tier, it appears that Google would be cheaper should the CPU usage be small (which in case of bitcoind it should be in most cases). However, as GCE is still early in development, few people could run benchmarks on it and the prices can change abruptly (much like the prices of Google App ...

This proves they have access to the private key for that address and are the owner. Where they send the email from is not important as long as you can verify the message. https://blockchain.info/...

If you're going to be running bitcoind, what you're looking for is the walletnotify configuration setting in bitcoin.conf. If you enable walletnotify, you run an app like curl to post the data to a web page. The data that you'll receive is the transaction id of an incoming transaction for an address in your wallet.

He was using this site called AuroraMine, which, as he explained it to me, will mine bitcoin for the trade-off of running background processes on your computer. That does not seem right.

Basically, Dwolla promised that they would never honor chargebacks. They in fact did and stole dollars back from their bank account after TH gave Bitcoins to the scammers. They lost a lot of money by this. I believe Dwolla is being sued for 2 million dollars as a result of this.
