TG Daily | Technology, Science, Entertainment, and Business News The post-PC era can also be called the post-TV era, even though TVs are still pretty cool when they are over 60 inches and LED and wall-mounted and attached to a Surround Sound speaker system. Whatever post-thingy era it is, TiVo and it's overpriced hard drive boxes are an anachronism. Gmail is down worldwide. It is the White Screen of Death (WSOD) and out-does Microsoft's Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) in terms of annoyance and impact on the peoples of the world. Google is not doing evil, just doing ticking-off. Come back AOL, you never let us down.
An international research group has for the first time demonstrated a quantum algorithm that performs a true calculation, without needing to know the answer before the start. The team's 'phase estimation algorithm', they say, is a central quantum algorithm which achieves an exponential speedup over all classical algorithms. It's a key sub-routine of many other important quantum algorithms, such as Shor's factoring algorithm and quantum simulations. "Before our experiment, there had been several demonstrations of quantum algorithms, however, none of them implemented the quantum algorithm without knowing the answer in advance. This is because in the previous demonstrations the quantum circuits were simplified to make it more experimentally feasible," says the University of Bristol's Dr Xiao-Qi Zhou, who led the project. First 'true' quantum calculation performed
