A report published this week indicates that a new, secure, high-speed computing technology based on quantum physics is compatible with “cloud computing” and could eventually revolutionize the world of computers as we currently understand it.


Word of the Day
mitraille
  • Small missiles, especially grape, canister, fragments of iron, and the like, when fired, as upon an enemy at close quarters.
  • To fire mitraille at.
The word 'mitraille' comes from the Old French 'mitaille', meaning 'small coins', sometimes used to mean 'scrap iron'.
