Researchers Create Silicon-Based Quantum Bit

sykobabul Impressive when you consider... (46 comments)

... that the Core i7 processor containing 731,000,000 transistors weighs approximately 386 g. 731,000,000 Silicon atoms weighs roughly 34 fg (femtograms) - using Avogadro's Constant and assuming I did my calculation correctly. That's a pretty huge space savings, even if you were only using binary computation.

Might Shatner Boldly Lead Canada As Governor?

sykobabul Old news that isn't (318 comments)

First of all, this references an article that is 2 months old. Since that time, Shat and officials in the Canadian government have confirmed that Bill isn't being considered for the post of Governor General.

Second, Shatner was never on a list, short or otherwise. This whole thing came about as a result of a Facebook group nominating him for GG.

It wasn't going to happen back in April, and it isn't going to happen now. Which is kind of a shame. I would have loved to hear Capt Kirk reading the throne speech.

Canadian Cannabis Car

sykobabul sykobabul writes  |  more than 4 years ago

sykobabul (1835784) writes "The CBC is reporting:

"An electric car made of hemp is being developed by a group of Canadian companies in collaboration with an Alberta Crown corporation.

The Kestrel will be prototyped and tested later in August by Calgary-based Motive Industries Inc., a vehicle development firm focused on advanced materials and technologies, the company announced."

Leave it to us Canadians to come up with all sorts of uses for cannabis."
