Quantum computing: Aliro wants to make quantum hardware more accessible for software developers and network engineers

With Q.COMPUTE and Q.NETWORK, Aliro Quantum is using cloud tech to make it easy for software developers to run quantum programs and networking engineers to build quantum networks.

If you’re a developer who wants to write code for a quantum computer, how do you know which quantum architecture and by extension which company’s
quantum computer

is best suited for the problem you’re trying to solve? Likewise, if you’re interested in connecting quantum computers together across a quantum network, how do you pick the right hardware and network design?

Aliro Quantum, thinks the answer to both these questions is to use an abstraction layer.

On this episode of

Why Google needs to update camera hardware to match software

Google Pixel 5 vs Google Pixel 4 cameras 3

Opinion post by

Robert Triggs

I’m not overly impressed with the Google Pixel 5’s camera. Not because it takes bad photos. It’s still capable of taking some astoundingly great pictures for a hardware package that’s barely changed in years. No, what irks me most about the Pixel 5 is the missed potential. Google’s photography algorithms are in a league of their own, but the refusal to change up the hardware formula has knocked the Pixel series off the podium this year.

I don’t want to dwell on the various issues I noticed in my time shooting with the Pixel 5 too much. You should check out our in-depth shootout for a closer look at the camera. The TL;DR is, while the Pixel 5 excels at colors and low light, the small sensor is very noisy by today’s standards. Super Res Zoom doesn’t keep up with today’s telephotos lenses, and the

What You Should Know – Garmin NuVi 2555LMT Hardware Features

The Garmin nüvi 2555LMT is a GPS navigator system in the line of Garmin’s advanced nüvi series. It is a significant gadget due to its updated status and several customization options, exit services and improved functionality when it comes to searches. Since this model is in the line of advanced nüvi series, the gadget comes with preloaded maps of US, Canada and Mexico. The gadget has an extra 5 inch screen. Although the 2555LMT is an improvement of the 2555LT, the 2555LT does not have lifetime maps and traffic updates. This also means that both gadgets are identical except the map feature and size of the screen which is 4.3 inches.

The Garmin nüvi 2555LMT has several cool hardware features but one of the biggest hardware disappointments is that the model does not come with a powered mount. This is also the case with other gadgets in the Garmin’s line … Read More

Website Design – Hardware and Software Tools You May Need

Before you get started with your new website or editing your current site, you need to consider which hardware and software tools you may need to support your efforts.

When it comes to hardware needed this can be very simple or reasonably complex depending on your particular needs. Of course, if you plan to create a new website (or even view your new website later) you need a computer. Simple enough, right? Not necessarily. We prefer to work with Apple Macintosh (OSX Leopard on MacBook Pro) as we do a lot of intensive graphics work and have previously invested in Adobe Creative Suite software (Photoshop, InDesign, Flash, Dreamweaver, etc.). It is just as easy to create your new website using your Windows PC but we would suggest you stay away from using Windows Vista (any version) and migrate to Windows 7 or stick with Windows XP. These operating systems are … Read More

Computer Software and Hardware Basic Knowledge

Computer software is what allows people to do what they need to accomplish in their everyday activities. A more complex definition of a computer software is; Software is a program that enables a computer to perform a specific task, as opposed to the physical components of the system. The physical components of the system were what I have talked about in the last post, the actual hardware that a person can physically touch.

The most common software that people know of is the operating system. Operating system is a system software that allows other software of your choosing to be ran properly. The operating system is the middle man to interacting between the hardware and the other software. The software that you want to install should be loaded onto a hard drive, or memory RAM. After the software is loaded on either of these two data platforms, the computer can … Read More
