If you have been listening to security now with Steve Gibson for a few years you probably heard about the portable dog killer (listen from 57:46). Not sure if Matt Meerian has listened to this Security Now episode but the ...
Giving another hit to the online security, a hacktivist group lacerated ITWallStreet.com, exposing nearly 50000 user accounts, including names, mailing and e-mail addresses, usernames, hashed passwords, phone numbers, ...
For all of its awesome applications, GPS has two fundamental flaws: It doesn't work indoors, and it can't really detect altitude. An Indoor Positioning System would fix that -- and introduce some seriously awesome applications.
Geolocation was listed as one of the important growth industries for the future (it also is a way to reassure students that the their are jobs for geography majors). The IPS isn't quite here, but it's hard to imagine that is too far away.
It’s a challenge that’s long been one of the holy grails of quantum computing: how to create the key building blocks known as quantum bits, or qubits, that exist in a solid-state system at room temperature. Most current systems, by comparison, rely on complex and expensive equipment designed to trap a single atom or electron in a vacuum and then cool the entire system to close to absolute zero.
A group of Harvard scientists, led by Professor of Physics Mikhail Lukin and including graduate students Georg Kucsko and Peter Maurer and postdoctoral researcher Christian Latta, say they’ve cracked the problem, and they did it by turning to one of the purest materials on Earth: diamonds.
Using a pair of impurities in ultra-pure, laboratory-grown diamonds, the researchers were able to create quantum bits and store information in them for nearly two seconds, an increase of nearly six orders of magnitude over the life span of earlier systems. The work, described in the June 8 issue of Science, is a critical first step in the eventual construction of a functional quantum computer, and has a host of other potential applications.
