So much this, switching to PC wasn’t that hard. For my next phone upgrade I’m not getting iPhone. Apple is losing their core audience. I used to be one of the biggest Apple fagboys as the term goes, powermac performa g3, powermac g4, powermac g5, mac pro towers. Once they started to ignore us, we switched to hackintosh and Linux. Linux has now replaced Mac OS for me. I don’t doubt for a minute Apple is in serious trouble and don’t realize it yet.

You haven't shown that at all.

>Recent advances in quantum computing have resulted in two 53-qubit processors: one from our group in IBM and a device described by Google in a paper published in the journal Nature. In the paper, it is argued that their device reached “quantum supremacy” and that “a state-of-the-art supercomputer would require approximately 10,000 years to perform the equivalent task.”
>We argue that an ideal simulation of the same task can be performed on a classical system in 2.5 days and with far greater fidelity. This is in fact a conservative, worst-case estimate, and we expect that with additional refinements the classical cost of the simulation can be further reduced.
>the original meaning of the term “quantum supremacy,” as proposed by John Preskill in 2012, was to describe the point where quantum computers can do things that classical computers can’t, this threshold has not been met.
>Building quantum systems is a feat of science and engineering and benchmarking them is a formidable challenge. Google’s experiment is an excellent demonstration of the progress in superconducting-based quantum computing, showing state-of-the-art gate fidelities on a 53-qubit device, but it should not be viewed as proof that quantum computers are “supreme” over classical computers.

>Never viable for consumers

I wouldn't go that far. There is still the possibility of the technology shrinking much like how classical computers went from room sizes behemoths to fitting in the palm of your hand.

I don't think it will happen any time soon, But maybe once the science has matured and things become more optimized we could have personal QCs.

It's fine though, we will literally never get a quantum computer capable of breaking arbitrary keys. It's beyond our level of intellect. Only the robots can do it.

QC is just better at certain things over classical computers. Anything that requires checking a ton of outcomes will benefit from QCs ability for parrellel computing.

I should note that there are other designs in the work that also promise parrellel computing that might actually be better than QC. I remember reading something about a biocomputer that could do parrellel computing but I cannot recall the article title.

I have only just realised the only reason all of these companies make anything is to collect your data. Their thought process is:

1. we need to collection conversation in the home, as we don't have that data yet.
2. what device can we come up with that does this while offering some kind of value to the consumer?

Does anyone else find that Google search results kinda suck now? When I used Google back in the day, I was almost surprised at how relevant the results were when my queries weren't even phrased well; now I'm frustrated with the results even when I type in really precise queries. I think what's going on is they're prioritizing news articles too much making it nearly impossible to find evergreen content. Thoughts?

Most serious high level languages have integers and float point numbers, it's doesn't require any extra time to use two types of number instead of one.
Unless you're a web dev and the the concept of two number types is beyond you grasp.

I'm having trouble because my usb won't be recognized when I use an adapter 5pin to connect to my phone and when I plug into my laptop it works fine, to transfer files.


And now I need to use it as a boot disk with Windows, and it gets recognized on my laptop but it says it can't find any drivers.

I don't get it. I didn't even know there were different types until this problem.

Did your laptop disable its USB ports? Go to the bios and see what it says. Also can't you take the SSD (or hardrive) out and put it in another machine. Also doesn't lenovo have this proprietary recovery software that makes a partition on your disk. Try booting into that. If you don't understand what I'm saying then pay someone to fix it for you.
>>
>>73292329
Explain exactly what you re trying to plug with what cable to what port and device.

You can connect usb 2.0 pendrive without any "adapters" to usb 3 laptops, and your 5 pin adapter might be the reason of problems. USB hubs are no-go too. Also, tldr oversimplified Phones don't work as usb pendrives by default and can't be used to install windows. Try taking out phone's SD card and try with a cheap card reader- these act sort of like pendrives.

Devops is really just a code word for we laid off most the sysadmins so we are making the developers do their jobs too. So really you are just "learn how to code" but getting familiar with automation stuff like ansible or puppet. Get used to building stuff in containers because nobody runs their own data center anymore and every just runs stuff on ec2 instances.

So maybe do a bootcamp if you are into that kind of thing.
>>
>>73291074
>>73292820

Boot camps are a waste of time, I got in without Uni. Just read a lot, code a lot, and apply a lot. You’ll always have to answer why you don’t have a degree but after a few years of experience people care less and ask as a formality more than anything.
>>
>>73293144
One more thing OP, learn from every single interview. Everything you don’t know, ask what concerns they have about you and go home and study for the next one.
