Researchers Create Silicon-Based Quantum Bit

stairmaster Re:ONLY A BIT ?? (46 comments)

Quantum computers aren't intended for general purpose computing or math operations

Not entirely true. There is a lot of work being done on general purpose quantum computing architectures at the moment. In fact there are already some quantum compilers out there such as http://tph.tuwien.ac.at/~oemer/qcl.html. Also, a number of algorithms do actually require math operations to be performed by the quantum processor. Remember that measuring a qubit collapses its wavefunction so it is often important to do math operations on qubits before they are measured.

Book Review: How Google Tests Software

stairmaster Verification? (44 comments)

Is there anything on the (automated) verification techniques used at Google? Microsoft has one of the best verification research labs around and they develop a handful of great tools that are freely available. Is there a Google analogue?

First Steps With the Raspberry Pi

stairmaster Re:Still don't get the point (241 comments)

You're thinking on the wrong scale. Consider a school district - you could equip an entire computer classroom for less than $1,000. That's where the Raspberry Pi starts to make sense.

When is it a good idea to incorporate?

stairmaster stairmaster writes  |  about 2 years ago

stairmaster (2652939) writes "A couple of months ago I came across an opportunity to supplement my income by doing some consulting work (read mobile app development) on the side. It appears that I will be doing this work for some time and my question for you, the /. community, is this: is it worth it to incorporate as a business? I know that the answer to this question is extremely dependent on circumstance but I'm interested in your experiences. Have you been in a similar situation and if you have how did it work out for you?"
