Is there even any evidence yet that we're any closer to having REAL quantum computing and not just some half-way, faked, bullshit version that isn't really using quantum physics?

There are plenty of reports available on actual quantum computers that currently exist.

I think a lot of people just think of quantum computers as "Like my PC, but a trillion times faster!" which is not what they do/are. (yet. I think that will come probably in 20-30 years.)

But they exist, and they work within the confines of their initial design specification. And there are certain things that they are absurdly faster at than a normal computer.

Now, if you mean proof as in, can we walk up to a place right now and see one, then no. But it would seem kind of silly to assume every single one of these stories are made up. What would be the point of lying about it?

1. PS4 mod support Sep 9, 2016, 21:05 Creston
 
Dang, that's a pretty big slap in the face for PS4 owners who initially got promised they'd get mods.

Sony is making just one dumb decision after another these days.

Turns out I have the first Bioshock as a separate physical game, and the other 2 on Steam. I'm probably shit out of luck to get the Remastered version for free.

China is launching a satellite soon as a test-bed for quantum-safe encryption, so it's likely most other nation-states already have ideas on how to keep encryption safe from quantum computers.

Of course, that type of encryption runs over mil-spec connections, so the normal user will never be able to use it. Once a quantum computer of sufficient capacity (in qubits) has been built, everyone might as well stop encrypting altogether.

Funny. It used to be that if you committed identity theft, you'd just go to jail, but for a banker that's just par for the course, and you just get fired for it?

Pretty much that, exactly. Fuck cbs...


Wow, so there's no confidence at all that this will be any good?

It could be the greatest Star Trek show of all time, but I'll be well and truly fucked before I'm going to pay whatever they charge for a streaming service that gives me more ads than an actual fucking tv show would.

So the odds of me ever getting to see it are basically zero.

Fair enough, obviously, if you took less time to complete it.

I think after 20 hours I hadn't even reported back to Interpol yet after the Dubai mission

21 hours from start to finish, including the side missions.

Do you people literally just run from one mission to the next and do nothing else whatsoever???

I'm 45 hours in and just made it to the GARM base.

They say DX12 may improve better performance on some systems, but offers no visual or gameplay differences.

That's funny, because you sure implied that it would look better back when you were pimping it heavily.

Mass Effect Borderlands Edition. Welcome Vault Hunters!

That was my first thought as well. Does this mean I get to romance Cl4ptr4p?

No, but ten to one says that that Asari who shows off her belly button is freaky in the sack.

Courage. Someone jam a fucking 3.5mm headphone connector up that imbecile's eye socket.

Watch all the Apple mongrels happily gobble up fucking ONE HUNDRED SIXTY DOLLARS EAR BUDS and defend Apple for this decision, though. I can't decide if it's brainwashing or Stockholm Syndrome.

Looks... okay. I'm sorry, THIS is what you guys chose to show off 4K? A dark vault with barely anything to see?

That's the 'hook' to get Gamers to purchase the DLC. Shrewd acts of Publishers at their best!

I don't think it's a hook to buy DLC, I think it's a hook to buy the next game next year.

Is it just me, or is the PS4 Pro pretty underwhelming? It's basically upsampled 4K, they never come out and say that YES IT WILL DO 1080p/60 FOR EVERY GAME, no 4K blu-ray support... I mean, wot?
