why saving data which already exists identical somewhere else? "duplicates of users' photos and videos that it keeps for backup" are stuff that can be deleted (does not help anybody anyway and will not be accessed anyway) or if the databases are so conservative, just remove the redundant files and instead put some links in place so to not break the user experience on looking at the same happy cat photo all over the web for the n-th time
i'm also not familiar with the inner workings of d-wave... but in general since we would have anyway always a non-quantum and quantum computer mixture, an indicator of the qubits used for a process might be of use!
just ask such questions - but be prepared for 42
so that they can be uncertain about our personal data?
thanx for the paper - its quite interesting, but not part of a running computer. also the bell signal would be changing from state to state of d-wave. quantum computers need a indicator of the bells signal (or rather CHSH signal) at the moment of computation! we should make it a nice colourful display in front to show you how much "quantified" you are computing atm
... but how do you do it inside the D-wave? if you want it to work as a "computer" (which is a bit a misnamer if quantum is involved), you would have to manipulate the machine itself to be able to determine bells signal or in your suggestion the passing.
how do you show the presence of entanglement without disturbing it?
credit cards stored in plain? or stored at all?? amateurs!
they might sell your data and give you access again from the earnings they do
creativity is to be shared but also protected because usually the artist wants credit for it. now if you are keeping things in "the cloud" (independend who is providing it to you, be it apple, google, adobe,
...) and you intend do work on them, you have to ultimately trust the owner of the clouds servers on your data staying your data. making a small website with holidays pictures is one thing but working with real data for high payed contracts i would never just put the data anywhere in a cloud... after all winds can carry clouds anywhere.
isn't that already happening?
a DVD has smaller frames inside compared to a blueray - whereas the texture and 3d structures a game is shipped with is the same... no game will show you a different 3d object with more detail simply because you are on higher resolution
16:10 was the standard before the industry decided that 16:9 is actually cheaper to produce http://mybroadband.co.za/news/hardware/17621-widescreen-monitors-where-did-1920x1200-go.html http://www.displaysearch.com/cps/rde/xchg/SID-0A424DE8-28DF6E59/displaysearch/hs.xsl/070108_16by9_PR.asp
does it matter that much if you play on a 4k or 2k screen? the games graphics are anyway not distinguishing between single pixels and the textures are not optimised for 4k. if you would play 2k side by side to 4k (now keeping aside the GPU power), would you realise the difference? 4k makes significant difference for photography and video!
kickstarters to sponsor marketing of the product of their company? wow, these guys are smart!
