Quantum Computing Becomes More Practical

IBM researchers say they’ve found a better way to detect and correct errors that could compromise quantum computing. Specifically, they can detect two types of error at the same time, something previously not possible. Quantum computing is based around a simple, if somewhat mindnumbing concept. ‘Traditional’ computing breaks information down into bits, which can each […]

iPad Glitch Delays Flights

Several American Airline flights were delayed yesterday after an iPad app used by pilots crashed the device. The app acted as an electronic version of a “flight bag” of printed documentation. AA got regulatory permission to use iPads in-flight in 2012 when it proposed using them to store digital versions of aircraft operating manuals and […]
