"Between superconductors that were first described and won the nobel prize per brian. Josephson a physicist and end so these Joseph are used. Because one of the things that you need to make accu- bet Just like a transistor or a regular bid is you need. You need to have non year behavior so you need to have some non linear already. And and that's what allows you to go sort of zero or one. St and in the case of a quantum a cubit than this non linear also able to be used and and put into state as well of your zero in one state but but these junctions are have some issues there sometimes tricky to make tricky to to to make reliably and one of the key things today is is trying to make more and more cubans so bigger and bigger arrays of of these cubits that are connected together just like you know is important to make more and more transistors in regular computers and so until google surveys and demonstration by something like fifty three cubits or something like that right. Yeah yeah they have on order. Fifty and ninety m has about the same number. Which isn't that. Many of the computing goes up exponentially with the number. So you don't have to get that many before you're able to compete or do better than a regular computer but but so the there's two things about our design That are that are different so the first thing is that we're not using any junctions instead. What we're using is a superconducting nanna wires so very thin thin wires up superconductor and these have our non linear because because of not not an effect called non linear connecticut which which we Which we've been using or or noticed When we were making our astronomy detectors and because there's no there's no junction. The thought is that they would be less sensitive to a certain type of noise that you have in this In the gap in between the superconductors in this tunnel junction and also the hope would be that they would be easier again. Just like the connecticut detectors easier to fabricate and easier to make large numbers of the other thing. that's different is. it's w band. So w manned is a wave guide. Bandit is centered around ninety gigahertz or one hundred gigahertz The cubans that. Ibm or or google or using They tend to operate in less than ten gigabytes. And so that's that's an important difference because at at ten gigahertz. One of the things that you have to do. If you want your quantum computer to work is you have to make sure that it's not upset by thermal noise so you need to cool everything really cold and you have to cool it for ten gigahertz the temperature you have to cool it to is proportional to the frequency. That you're cuban operates attend gigahertz. they're cooling their these cubans down to sort of fifteen degrees. Fifteen million degrees above absolute zero. Fifteen million kelvin. But if we can make ours work at ninety gigahertz hundred gigahertz then we only would have to cool to maybe. Two hundred million kelvin. Which still sounds pretty cold yet but it turns out that it's a lot easier to cool stuff down and in fact we..
Creating a website with Wix
"So the hot is are now in full swing. And you've got so much free time on your hands ready to tackle creating that new website or blog. well yeah. It's a daunting project but online tools of the last several years. Now make it much easier than in the past with dragon drop options that can let you create something that looks really good within a few hours that is of course once you've mastered the basics of how the programs work if you listen to podcasts. You've heard the words wordpress squarespace and wicks frequent advertisers. On many shows. Telling you how easy it is to make a cool website now. Wordpress targeted towards tech nerds. Who don't need support while squarespace in wicks or for the rest of us. I have been unhappy with the look of my wordpress photography blog for some time and i wanted a fresh start so i was inspired to give a try by my friend. Ed beg who after he left. Usa today started a wickes website and blog. That i think looks fantastic. So i went off to create a new blog on wits in a few days. That may not look as great as ads but it. I think it's clearly more appealing to the eye than what i have with wordpress. Now before you go down this rabbit hole know that wicks can be used for free however your web address will have wicks and the name and you'll have wicks branding all over the site and once you decide that you're serious. You're not going to want to have this free site anymore. You're gonna wanna pay to remove the branding and get your own personalized demeaning. The other thing to note is that once you have your blog you have to pay someone to host it to have it online and boy is. There are a lot of fine print. You can see that there are companies like go daddy host dream host. That will charge you anywhere from five to ten dollars monthly to way more depending on the size of your site but that introductory rate is just that introductory wait. They will jack you up afterwards. Dream host for instance advertisers array to four dollars monthly or about fifty bucks for the first year jumping to one hundred twenty dollars in the second year for me. What's even worse. Is that go daddy. The plan i have now is advertised. That thirteen dollars monthly. But because i'm several years into the contract. I've been bumped up to twenty dollars monthly or two hundred and forty dollars a year. So yeah. I'm interested in leaving. Wicks in squarespace both offer hosting as well as website and blog creation tools for the masses support and they don't offer introductory pricing so i like that squarespace rates start at twelve dollars. Go to forty dollars. Monthly wicks starts at fourteen dollars and those to about forty dollars monthly as well but a big difference squarespace will offer you unlimited storage for photos which is a big deal. Since we can't run our posts without photos wicks doesn't offer unlimited photo storage it offers three gigabytes of storage the fourteen dollar rate ten gigabytes at the dollar rate two hundred gigs the twenty-three dollar rate and i don't know what any of that means because how many pictures are going to fit in a gig and wicks doesn't have a tool for you to see how much storage you've used now. I love the ease of creating a site with wicks. I love the many design options and the fact that it's potentially more affordable way more versatile than what i have with go daddy but the storage could be an issue. What happens if you start running out of room. Well i think you know the answer. You have to start paying more money. If you're at the eighteen dollar eight monthly. you're gonna have to go to twenty three dollars monthly. Meanwhile we'll i switch from wordpress to wicks while i'm leaning in that direction as again i prefer the look and the tools to expand beyond what i have now but i do post a lot of photos. It is a photography blog after all. So it's something i have to consider. I will let you know my decision within the next few days
Apple launches new MacBook Pro with updated keyboard
"The new MAC pro. Thirteen inch looks great for photographers. So this just got announced today on Monday when I record the podcast. Their new thirteen inch macbook pro. This is what I've been waiting for now. The fifteen inch. The new fifteen inch has already been announced but personally I like the thirteen inch a little bit better. I think is a little bit more portable in the screens are so good that I do just fine doing my work on it and I was really curious to see what the specs we're going to be on this new machine and what the pricing is going to be. So I'm going to go over the machine. The I think makes the most sense for photographers and that version has the Intel core. I five quad core processor right which is very nice. Eight gigabytes of Ram Onboard Ram. And then the five twelve gigabyte SSD. So that's the model that I'm talking about right now. It's not the cheapest one but there's only one up from the cheapest one by the way this laptop that I'm talking about brand new is one thousand. Four hundred ninety nine dollars. Seems like I paid that much or more for my existing thirteen inch which by the way I bought in early. Two Thousand Fourteen early two thousand fourteen. And it's you know it's still working. I to upgrade it. This one might be a machine that I do if I can get the scratched together to do it. But they are good investments seriously. They are getting investments. They they go and go and go. So what makes this new one kind of cool well has a number of highlights first of all this one has the new. Magic Keyboard has the redesign scissor mechanism. So that part I think alone at the keyboard on these new ones is the good keyboard not the one that has some problems a couple of years ago. Very nice retina display They made to the stereo sound better and they have these immersive stereo speakers in the battery. Life is a bit better to now. This one also has the touch bar. Which is very nice. The touch part self is actually a retina display as well and it's contextual depends on you know which APP you're renting as to you. Know what options are there on? It is sort of adapts Depending on what you're doing at the moment in a really makes it easier to navigate menus and things like that the power button has the touch. Id Sensor so you can quickly log in to the macbook pro. Just by you know putting your finger on their fingerprint and then you can also use touch. Id to make purchases over the web if you have apple pay. So that's another very nice feature so as I mentioned before the model that I like is the one thousand four hundred ninety nine dollar model one point four gigahertz eighth generation Intel core. I five Qui- core processor with a burst. Speed up to three point nine gigahertz and then it also has the eight gigabytes of Ram in the five twelve gigabyte. Ssd alrighty now in terms of supporting external devices is got thunderbolt three ports supporting bi directional transfer speeds of up to forty gigabytes a second while also supporting ten gigabytes per second USB three point one and device charging Scott Wi fi five eight zero two point eleven A. C. Built in for Wireless Networking Bluetooth. Five Point Oh which will allow you. To connect additional compatible peripherals and there is a facetime hd Webcam so nice looking machine comes in space gray or silver always kinda wanted the space gray version of Mac book. I don't know we'll see. This is the most tempted. I've been to upgrade my two thousand fourteen thirteen inch and We'll see how things go I'm posting of course the podcast on facebook. If you have any comments about this machine or if you're tempted to upgrade to it
"less than ten gigabytes" Discussed on The Personal Computer Radio Show
"Thirty two gigabytes. I've had the jug of the system to fit the windows ten operating system. Updates in this limited storage, the actual free storage with windows ten in stored is less than ten gigabytes in a new advisory. Microsoft has one users that they will need up to twice as much free storage on their PC's to receive when those ten nineteen or three the upgrade which finally gives oil uses control over windows updates. The new requirement will apply. Two overs of windows. Ten home pro and enterprise in effect. Dismembered of windows update has rendered these low end systems obsolete is it advisable to skip the update. Hell, no. The new minimum is thirty two gigabytes. Double the previous sixteen gigabyte stipulation of thirty two bit windows ten and almost forty percent more than the sixty four bit editions for uses with modern PC's. This is unlikely to be a problem. But for all the PC's or uses who consume a lot of storage discovered prove a more problematic hurdle with some finding that they need to buy a new hard-drive and migrate their data. Microsoft's move will open the floodgates to fall lodge requirements in the near future. Don't be surprised if sixty four gigabyte minimum will be needed in the near future. So if you have an older PC or simply don't want to give additional. Space. Should you just windows? Ten nine hundred ninety three the answer is. No. So yes, you need windows. Ten nine hundred ninety three and yes, you may have to offload or delete some data or by some new hardware to get it.
