Money From Nothing

I confess I don't quite fully "get" Bitcoins - I have admitted this before, and my grasp of it has not really improved. I understand the basics of the process for creating the coins, it's where the "coins" interface with the real world that my mind sort of goes blaaarrgggh. Regardless of my deficiencies, there is a fascinating article on ArsTechnica about a Bitcoin "mining" box; a small, sub-$300 device that should churn out about $20 worth of Bitcoins each day. I assume that means you are making money from nothing?
