Sorry, something went wrong.

A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.
If you see them, show them this information:

A "Photon Machine Gun" For Quantum Computers 143

Posted by kdawson
from the entangle-this dept.
An anonymous reader writes "Generating entangled photons in a reliable way is impossible right now, stalling the development of the optical quantum computers that would use entangled photons as quantum bits (qubits). Because entangled photons can only be produced at random — which takes time — the most powerful optical quantum computing device use only 6 qubits. UK and Israeli quantum physicists have designed a blueprint for a 'quantum machine gun' that fires out barrages of entangled photons on demand. They think within a few years this device will be built, and could lead to quantum computing using 20 to 30 qubits. Every additional qubit doubles the computing power, so these quantum computers could outperform any existing classical computer, the researchers say. The quantum machine gun is described as 'one of the most exciting theoretical proposals I've read in five years' by a leading quantum physicist." The research was published in Physical Review Letters earlier this month.

I don't think it is fair that you got first post, I wish I had got first post, my first post was going to be quite good. Someone (perhaps the shashdot editors should fix this). Maybe in retrospect I should have realised that an Anonymous Coward by nature would try to get first post, but I didn't, my hope was that the Anonymous Coward would change his behaviour this time so that everyone would get to read my post - but I guess the Anonymous Coward can't be trusted to do the right thing after all. Its a shame though. I really hope that from this chastisement Anonymous Coward will get message and change his spots. Irrelevant first posts are selfish and spoil things for everyone.

Microsoft

Miguel de Icaza writes "Here is a story revealing just how threatened microsoft are by google. While senior partners can expect the full chair experience, some lowly staffers who are putting in their notice are being escorted off campus immediately. Why? Because they've put in their notice to join Google. In Microsoft's eyes, Google is Enemy No. 1. Anyone leaving Redmond for the search leader is a threat. Not because they'll scurry around collecting company secrets — as if Google's interested in Microsoft's '90s-era technologies. Departing employees, however, might tell other 'Softies how much better Google is. If an employee is leaving for Amazon.com or another second-tier employer which doesn't make Microsoft so paranoid, they'll probably serve out the traditional two weeks of unproductive wrapping up. So if you're planning on leaving Microsoft for Google, pack up your belongings and say goodbye to friends ahead of time. There'll be no cake and two weeks of paid slacking for you."

Java

+ - JPC is now open source->

Miguel de Icaza writes "JPC, the pure java x86 PC emulator, is one of the coolest things I've seen done with FreeDOS in the last few years. An early preview demonstration was previously discussed on slashdot, but it is now GPL licenced for all. It allows you to boot an instance of FreeDOS in a Java window on your web browser. From there, you can run programs, games, etc. This presents a wonderful opportunity to embed FreeDOS in other systems, or to increase the availability of FreeDOS and DOS applications to users. And now the JPC team has made an important announcement: "Further to your interest in JPC (pure java x86 PC emulator) we are pleased to announce that, with permission of Oxford University, the source code to JPC is now available via the GPL version 2 open source licence." To try JPC or download the source code, visit the project website at: http://www-jpc.physics.ox.ac.uk. But does it run linux?"
