Excited to launch a new site for the web development business I've been running for a while – https://punkrockdev.com 🚀. Follow https://plus.google.com/104393640273259472168

Can all audio output, i.e. the output of all elements on the page defined like <audio-object style='display: none;'></audio-object> be automatically forwarded to a Cast device, without going through the `session.loadMedia` API described in https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/chrome_sender#Media_control ?

Basically, the functionality of the basic Google Cast Chrome extension works great for our app, since we have a lot of interaction with the standard audio API and it mostly just works even if we turn on the casting in the extension. For example we use volume changing to get fade-out, fade-in effects, handle of buffering using multiple audio-objects to support a song queue etc. But, we would still like to have a more "baked-in" experience where we can present a toggle button to turn casting on/off from the app UI itself.

First screenshot of #Ubuntu running on +Qt 5.5 alpha. Basic functionality ok! Lots of bugs to be fixed in the coming months though...

A step closer to Quantum Computation

One of the primary challenges in building a quantum computer is creating a robust error-prevention system for the information stored in quantum memory elements (“qubits”). 

Unlike a bit in a classical computer, one can’t just check the information stored in a qubit directly -- doing so will collapse the entanglement and superposition states, removing the quantum properties that make it useful for computation. 

Today in the journal Nature , researchers report on a nine qubit quantum circuit where, through a carefully choreographed series of logic operations, the qubits are able to detect and effectively protect each other from bit errors.

Want to learn more about how quantum error correction (QEC) pulls out just enough information to detect errors without altering the information in any individual qubit? Head over to the Google Research blog!
