Outdoor Computing with a Deck Desk

Outdoor Computing with a Deck Desk

mgsloan2019-12-08In the last couple years, I've been experimenting with some approaches for outdoor computer use. For way too long, I'd felt compelled to stay indoors to use the computer for any substantial chunk of time. Happily, I've found some ways to use my computer outside which work quite well for me, and I hope they…
Qualcomm follows its weak computing chip with even weaker computing chips

Qualcomm follows its weak computing chip with even weaker computing chips

Home News Computing (Image credit: Qualcomm) Qualcomm has been making an effort to break through into the computing space, powering recent Windows devices like the Microsoft Surface Pro X with its Snapdragon 8cx chipset. But, it's just getting started. At its Snapdragon Tech Summit in Hawaii, Qualcomm announced two followups to the 8cx, the 7c and…

The Quantum Computing Threat to American Security – The Wall Street Journal

Google announced last month that it had achieved “quantum supremacy,” demonstrating the potential of a new kind of computer that can perform certain tasks many orders of magnitude faster than the most advanced supercomputers. It’s a crucial moment for America’s national security, which depends on winning the race to do what quantum computers will do…
Quantum Computing Is Here! But Also Not Really

Quantum Computing Is Here! But Also Not Really

Wednesday was warm in Santa Barbara but Google’s quantum computing labs were pleasingly cool—colder than outer space in some spots. Three fridge-sized silver cylinders hung below crowns of ducts and cables. Inside, superconducting quantum processors were at operating temperature, a fraction of a degree above absolute zero.Googlers gazed at one of the gleaming cylinders, sporting…

Quantum Computing is coming to TC Sessions: Enterprise on Sept. 5

Here at TechCrunch, we like to think about what’s next, and there are few technologies quite as exotic and futuristic as quantum computing. After what felt like decades of being “almost there,” we now have working quantum computers that are able to run basic algorithms, even if only for a very short time. As those…

Computing pioneer and LGBT icon Alan Turing will grace the £50 note in 2021

Alan Turing, one of the pioneering figures in modern computing, and also a tragic one in LGBT history, will soon appear on the U.K.’s £50 note. He was selected from a shortlist of scientists and bright minds so distinguished that it must have made the decision rather difficult. The nomination process for who would appear…
