Apparently crime does pay, as Rockstar is rewarding Grand Theft Auto Online players with the first installment of a $500,000 in-game payout later this week. This sudden infusion of $250,000 serves as a mea culpa for the rocky GTA Online launch. Reports of players going missing and cars vanishing...

On most MMOs, my inventory is a sea of consumables. Every little boost I get -- stat boosts, healing items, resource items -- gets squirreled away to be used only when the situation is dire enough to warrant that item going away forever.

Wealth. Big stinking masses of it. That's what the Bank of England is letting you get a glimpse of through its own official app. A panoramic tour gives a scrollable view of an unspecified number of gold bars, each weighing in at 13kg and -- more importantly -- worth around £350,000 ($528,000...
