Hewlett-Packard Splits off PC, Printer Businesses

October 6, 2014 2:47 pm | by AP | News | Comments

Hewlett-Packard is splitting itself into two companies, one focused on its personal computer and printing business and another on technology services, such as data storage, servers and software, as it aims to drive profits higher. Hewlett-Packard, like other PC makers, has been facing changing consumer tastes — moving away from desktops and laptops and toward smartphones and tablets.

Quantum Entanglement Made Tangible

October 5, 2014 11:46 pm | by Nik Papageorgiou | News | Comments

EPFL scientists have designed a first-ever experiment for demonstrating quantum entanglement in the macroscopic realm. Unlike other such proposals, the experiment is relatively easy to set up and run with existing semiconductor devices. Interest in entanglement is increasing today, as it challenges the foundations of quantum mechanics itself.

Where are the quantum computers? Aren’t they supposed to be speeding up decryption and internet searches? After two decades of research, you still can’t find them in stores. Well, it took two decades or more of research dedicated to semiconductors and circuit integration before we had digital computers. For quantum computers too it will take technology more time to catch up to the science.

Big-headed Ants Grow Bigger when Faced with Fierce Competitors

The big-headed ant (Pheidole megacephala) is considered one of the world’s worst invasive ant species. Their giant, muscle-bound noggins power their biting parts, the mandibles, which they use to attack other ants and cut up prey. In a new study, researchers report that big-headed ant colonies produce larger soldiers when they encounter other ants that know how to fight back.
