Get ready to travel through time and eat cake while you do it!

My company with patent pending technology will let you travel through time while eating cake.

Sorry, I got prior art on this. Everytime I find myself eating birthday cake I am shocked that I've traveled one year though time. It really sucks (the time travel, not the cake).

Is the end result graphene, a lattice of carbon atoms, or not? What exactly is a "substitute carbon nanosheet" if not graphene itself? Is the process new or the material new? This article is like saying you developed an easier process for creating wood-pulp-based white laminar sheets that are flexible and suitable for writing letters and calling it a "paper substitute", without clearly saying why it isn't paper.

The principle reason to put 2560x1440 pixels on a phone is to further the embarrassment of monitor manufacturers who can only manage to get 1/4 of the pixels into a 19" screen.

We will soon be better off buying a smart phone and a Fresnel lens instead of desktop monitor and our computers will begin to look a lot like the ones in the movie Brazil.

How could they not know?

Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle: If they knew for a fact their claims were fraudulent, they would not know what their claims were. Since they in fact know that they are claiming to have a quantum computer, they cannot know whether the claim is fraudulent or not.
