There are several Yoga-brand PCs available at this point, and so the big question is: does the Yoga 3 14 stand out among them, or is it a rehash of a laptop we've already seen a time or two?

Google researchers work around Quantum Computing errors

Google researchers work around Quantum Computing errors

Quantum computers can solve problems that would take an ordinary computer millions of years to complete. It would take not thousands, but millions of years to create solutions to complex equations. Google and researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) have just tackled the latest roadblock that was holding back quantum computing. They created program groups called qubits, which use delicate quantum physics to represent information. They programmed these qubits to identify and prevent calculation errors. Qubits haven't actually prevented initial bit-flip errors, but they prevent the mistake from derailing a calculation.

Such is said to be accomplished by shrinking down the bezels on the display, the latter of which has reportedly surfaced in a series of images including comparison shots with other Apple devices. The images show what appears to be a small MacBook Air display sans the rest of the computer, and while it should all be taken with a grain of salt, we've the details after the jump.
