Enlarge a, A birds-eye view of the 16-km free-space quantum teleportation experiment. Charlie sends photon 1 to Alice for BSM. Classical information, including the results of the BSM and the signal for time synchronization, is sent through the free-space channel with photon 2, to Bob, before decoding and triggering of the corresponding unitary transformation. b, Sketch of the experimental system.

SOURCE: Intel Corp. Intel's rendition of a traditional 2-D transistor, at left, alongside their new 3-D transistor, right. For examples of how digital technology is rapidly, profoundly, and unexpectedly shaping lives across the globe, look no further than today’s news: social media and the Arab Spring; the Stuxnet worm and the clandestine cyberwar against Iran; the proliferation of smartphones and tablets; the ubiquitous web and the cloud; Netflix streaming surpassing web surfing on the net; Bradley Manning’s data dump to Wikileaks; and Microsoft as the new tech underdog. The digital world is changing rapidly, and so are we. We have become accustomed to this state of perpetual flux, of this open-endedness in the application and proliferation of new digital technologies.
" Tick-Tock " is a model adopted by chip manufacturer Intel Corporation since 2007 to follow every microarchitectural change with a die shrink of the process technology. Every "tick" is a shrinking of process technology of the previous microarchitecture and every "tock" is a new microarchitecture . [ 1 ] Every year, there is expected to be one tick or tock.

Exabyte? 1,000 Petabytes, 1,000,000 Terabytes or 1 billion Gigabytes. 1 EB is a big number, but that's not the most impressive thing about the new technology. Who? Oracle/Sun/StorageTek announces a new tape drive this morning, the StorageTek T10000C. StorageTek built their business on high-capacity tape drives and robotic tape silos for mainframe and large-scale data storage environments.

On the night of the hack, I tried to make sense of the ruin that was my digital life. My Google account was nuked, my Twitter account was suspended, my phone was in a useless state of restore, and (for obvious reasons) I was highly paranoid about using my Apple email account for communication. I decided to set up a new Twitter account until my old one could be restored, just to let people know what was happening. I logged into Tumblr and posted an account of how I thought the takedown occurred.
By Stephen Ornes / September 21, 2011 Using telescopes on Earth, space agencies track large pieces of debris orbiting the planet. Most of the garbage is in low-Earth orbit, or LEO, which extends as high as 2,000 kilometers (1,243 miles) above Earth’s surface.

Are Cell Phones Killing Bees? How the False Meme Spread – CleanTechnica: Cleantech innovation news and viewsYou may have seen the sensational stories on the Internet the past 24 hours that it’s finally been confirmed: Cell Phones KILL Bees!
Scientists may have found the cause of the world’s sudden dwindling population of bees – and cell phones may be to blame. Research conducted in Lausanne, Switzerland has shown that the signal from cell phones not only confuses bees, but also may lead to their death. Over 83 experiments have yielded the same results.
