What You've Been Missing Over At ITInnovation.com

from the lots-of-good-stuff dept

Back at the beginning of December, you may recall that we launched a new website, ITInnovation.com, with sponsorship from Sun and Intel. So far, it's been a lot of fun. While we crosspost some stories on both sites, there are many that just are found there. So, here's a quick listing of a few of the stories you may have missed: There are plenty of other posts as well. We're just getting started over there and ramping up the site nicely so far. So, if you're interested in IT issues and innovation, go check it out.

    Quantum Computing

    I've put a new comment on the Quantum computing one ...

    Is there a Google Gadget for the iGoogle Home page for the ITInnovation feed?

    Re: Quantum Computing

    I just read it... thanks Richard, that answered a lot of questions I had about the quantum story. I recommend everyone else read it if they want perspective on what's happening there.

    reboog711,

    Nope... not yet. We'll see about whipping one up.

    Thanks!

    Richard,

    Wow. Thanks a lot for that informative comment. I'll link to it here:

    I didn't realize the D-Wave chips needed to be supercooled? Is that right? (citation please?)

    Re: Re: Quantum Computing

    ah. whoops. I guess if you just go to the D-Wave website:

    D-Wave systems are architected around an innovative processor that uses a computational model known as adiabatic quantum computing (AQC). These processors exploit quantum effects to solve search and optimization problems in a new way. They are fabricated using superconducting metals instead of semiconductors and are operated at ultra-low temperatures in a magnetic vacuum.
