Why just fictional people?
You have plenty of names from sagas (Star trek, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Borges' novels...)
And, yes, I do confirm, whatever they put in this poll stuff there will always be at least a trivially missing option.
Any communication medium would have been enough to "help"!
From carrier pigeons and smoke signals to telephones and BBSes up to email, mailing lists, web sites and blogs...
This claim about twitter should read instead "internet". But then the article would loose a lot ofits glamorous taste, I fear!
VincenzoRomano writes: "A Canadian company in Burnaby, BC is now selling a quantum computer that you can buy, for a mere USD 10M, for your lab, or even your home if you have the resources and needs of Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark. Ther manufacturer of the marvel, the "One", is D-Wave Systems and is not releasing a lot of information about the product.
Just that's built around a 128-qubit processor (and not the weird 129-qubit reported by Tom's hardware) called "Rainier".
The final selling price can be found in another article published by Engadget.
The computer itself is not a general purpose one. It can only solve optimization problems using Quantum Annealing approach.
So, as stated by TH,
No, it cannot play Crysis.
and I'd also add that you cannot use it to update your tweets as well."
