One Qubit to Rule Them All

Japanese researchers have had a breakthrough in what is essentially the next step towards practical Quantum computing.

Researchers in Japan have developed new circuit technology touted to be the vital next step towards the realization of a practical quantum computer. A collaborative effort between the Japan Science and Technology Agency, the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN) and electronics vendor NEC Corp., the technology is said to be the world’s first quantum bit (qubit) circuit that can control the strength of coupling between qubits.

 

Current electronics rely on the manipulation of binary bits between two states — on and off, or one and zero — to store information. In quantum computing, information is stored in qubits, which can exist in a much larger range of states.

You gotta bare in mind these £500 HD ready TVs are merely entry level, and at 32" the screens aren`t capable of showing the difference between the these and the larger, higher end models - £750+.

One reviewer I read last night went on about the Samsung LE32R87 only using a limited HDMI resolutions, as most of them do at this price range and size, and comparing it to a fellow reviewers larger more expensive unit u can barely see the difference.

I guess u stretch the 32" to beyond 37" and u`d notice a whole lot more.

There are HDTVs out there with DVI inputs but u do have to make sure they`re actually passing digital.

I`m with Kemp on the DVI tech tho, as long as it`s not just there for connectivity and actually does the digital, not just a vga pass through or whatever.

S-Video`s good enough, not too many people complain about the quality of certain TV shows ;) All the non mac editing machines here use s-video. All depends on implementation, leads used and video cards. Inteference counts for alot with these.

If I`m spending £750+, I`m looking for the TV to do exactly what I`d want. £500 is practically entry level, u got 3 HDMI - kewl.

They`re still not as good as monitors, imo.

Special thanks to every1 who took part in this thread, including OC3D, all your inputs were very much appreciated - even tho the thread went on for quite some time :p

Friendly City Link guy just dropped a box off containing a Samsung L32R87BDX...

I`d love to know why I`m not ripping the box open, but continuing to read WC Annihilus` excellent AMD article..

Any news on how good it is?

I've narrrowed the choice down to Samsung vs Sony, but not sure still...

I'm the fussiest bar steward in the world with HDTV's but that one has everything I want (apart from 1080p which I can't afford). 3 x HDMI's and a load of inputs + freeview for the missus to watch when Sky+ is recording 2 channels (or me to watch champions league on)

That`s the one I got Kemp.

Does a 1920x1080. The HDMI = DVI input.

EDIT: Did notice the price has dropped @ dabs since I bought it, which is always the case.
