I've had a Rubik's Cube sitting on my desk for the better part of a year and still haven't solved it. Marcell Endrey of Hungary needed less than a half minute to blow through his during a recent competition.
Today's quantum computers are no more than experiments. Researchers can string together a handful of quantum bits -- seemingly magical bits that store a "1″ and "0″ at the same time -- and these ephemeral creations can run relatively simple algorithms. But new research from IBM indicates that far more complex quantum computers aren't that far away.
This thing's about the same size as a USB stick from the early 2000s, but packs in a whole lot more. It's a dual-core computer, complete with HDMI output, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

While it doesn’t make much difference to us poor 4G-less Britons, LG’s new quad-core flagship line is conspicuously missing any LTE models. Apparently the reason for that is battery drain – LG’s working hard to try and combine quad-core beasts with LTE that’ll actually last a day, but we’re not going to see it this year.
Who would've thought that car behemoth Ford would be at Mobile World Congress? But it was. Because it has the European launch of its Ford Sync in-car app and connectivity suite to talk about.
Mercedes-Benz has announced its plans to fully integrate the the driver's iPhone as well as the Siri assistant into future A-Class models. It'll be like having your own personal, mildly-incompetent HAL.
ZTE has just confirmed plans to launch yet another different type of mobile telephone, in the large, slab like shape of its ZTE PF112 model.
Yahoo and Facebook used to be BFFs, with the social network driving a significant amount of traffic to both Yahoo's Flickr and email client. So why is Yahoo suddenly accusing Facebook of as many as twenty patent infringements just ahead of its IPO?
