If quantum computing is at the Goddard level that would be a good thing for quantum computing. This means that the major fundamental breakthrough that would put them over the top was in hand and merely a lot of investment, engineering and scaling was needed.
There have been comparisons of current quantum computers to classical computers to the Wright Brothers flyer against lighter than air vehicles. The Wright brothers flyers had inferior performance and capabilities to the Zeppe...

The study offers new insights into the concepts of free choice and causality, and suggests that causality need not be considered a fundamental principle of physics.
The laws of classical mechanics are independent of the direction of time, but whether the same is true in quantum mechanics has been a subject of debate. While it is agreed that the laws that govern isolated quantum systems are time-symmetric, measurement changes the state of a system according to rules that only appear to hold forward in time, and there is difference in opinion about the interpretation of this effect.

Reading books from 20+ years ago when they discuss extending human life I wonder if they realized that in 2015 the population would be over 7 billion, and where would all these people with extended lives live.

Air-gapped computers are isolated—separated both logically and physically from public networks—ostensibly so that they cannot be hacked over the Internet or within company networks.  This new method could allow a hacker to access one of these computers.
Researchers at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) Cyber Security Research Center have discovered that virtually any cellphone infected with a malicious code can use GSM phone frequencies to steal critical information from infected "air-gapped" computers.

As Haraway says: "With our increasing dependence on technology, we are all cyborgs. Perhaps the androids will be next?"
In contemporary science fiction, we often see robots passing themselves off as humans. According to a UiS researcher, the genre problematises what it takes to be accepted as a human being and provides a useful contribution to the debate about who should have the right to reproduce.

Like Tor, HORNET encrypts encapsulated network requests in "onions", but HORNET uses two different onion protocols for protecting anonymity of requests to the open internet.
HORNET, a high-speed onion routing network, could be deployed on routers as part of the Internet.

This video puts the scale of the solar system into real perspective by showing how it takes you pass through the solar system at the speed of light.  Light travels 299,792,458 m/s, and it takes just over 45 minutes from the surface of the sun to reach Jupiter.
Space is really, really big, and there’s been a couple of great videos out there that show off the relative size of objects. This video puts the scale of the solar system into real perspective by showing how it takes you pass through the solar system at the speed of light.

The presence of considerably more software in modern cars alone is a significant contributing factor to security problems.
While computers bring great benefits they come with drawbacks too – not least, as news stories reveal every day, the insecurity of often very private data connected to the public internet. Only now that computers are appearing in practically everything, the same insecurity also applies – as demonstrated by the drive-by hack of a speeding Jeep SUV, hijacked and shut down by security researchers as it sped past at 70mph.

When talking with authors, musicians, and artists I always ask if they are aware of Creative Commons and advise they look into it.  [via thenounproject.com]
Creative Commons is raising funds for Made with Creative Commons: A book on open business models on Kickstarter! Let's write a book that shows the world how sharing can be good for business.
