Particles Can Be Quantum Entangled Through Time As Well As Space

Quantum entanglement says that two particles can become intertwined so that they always share the same properties, even if they're separated in space. Now it seems particles can be entangled in time, too. Who's ready for some serious quantum weirdness?

Of all the ideas in modern physics, quantum entanglement is a serious contender for the absolute strangest. Basically, entangled particles share all their quantum properties, even if they are separated by massive distances in space. The really odd part is that any changes made to the properties of one particle will instantly occur in the other particle. There are some subtle reasons why this doesn't actually violate the speed of light, but here's the short version: this is all very, very bizarre.

But all experiments in quantum entanglement have focused exclusively on spatial entanglement, because seriously...isn't this already weird enough? Apparently not for physicists S. Jay Olson and Timothy C. Ralph of Australia's University of Queensland, who have figured out a series of thought experiments about how to entangle particles across time.

Maher Zain: Thank You Allah Download Album

Album: Thank You Allah
Release: October 30, 2009
Label: Awakening Worldwide Ltd.
Total Length: 1:13:14
Copyright: 2009

Maher Zain’s Biography

Fascinated by the music and instruments, Maher got his first keyboard when he was only ten and ever since music officially became part of Maher’s world.

The family moved to Sweden when Maher was only 8, where he continued his schooling, and later entered university and got a Bachelors degree in Aeronautical Engineering. With things changing around him, one thing remained the same – his strong passion for music. He would spend late nights at school with his friends where they would sing, rap, compose and experiment with music in every way. It didn’t take him long to realize that music became an integral part of who he is.

After being involved for a while in the music scene as a music producer, Maher was introduced to RedOne, a gifted music producer who was fast rising in the music scene in Sweden. Maher started working with RedOne and later moved to New York. For a few years he was in the middle of the hot rush of the NY music industry, working with chart topping artists such as Kat Deluna on her debut album including smash hits ‘Whine up’ and ‘Run the Show’. Maher had what many would describe as a dream job for someone so young in such a glamorous business, but for Maher it felt like this was far from what he would call ‘the dream’, “I loved the music but I hated everything that surrounded it, it always felt like something wasn’t right”.

In January 2009, Maher Zain decided to work on an album that reflects his identity – Arab, Western and Muslim – and signed with Awakening Records. Maher’s debut album Thank You Allah reached the number 1 spot on Amazon’s World Music charts and number 9 on the R&B charts.

In January 2010, in a music competition organized by Nujoom FM (Egypt’s biggest music radion station) Maher’s track ‘Ya Nabi Salam Alayka’ was voted as the best song for 2009. Runners up included big names like Hussein Aljismi, Mohammed Mounir and Sami Yusuf. Maher has already performed at sold out concerts in Algeria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Egypt, England, France, Holland, Sweden, and the US amongst others and is fast becoming the ‘next superstar of Islamic music’.

Terminator Robotic Hand Of Doom Is Now A Reality

The iconic metal hand left behind by the time traveling robot terror known as the Terminator just got one step closer to reality.

German researchers have built an anthropomorphic robot hand that can endure collisions with hard objects and even strikes from a hammer without breaking into pieces.

In designing the new hand system, researchers at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics, part of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), focused on robustness. They may have just built the toughest robot hand yet.

The DLR hand has the shape and size of a human hand, with five articulated fingers powered by a web of 38 tendons, each connected to an individual motor on the forearm.

The main capability that makes the DLR hand different from other robot hands is that it can control its stiffness. The motors can tension the tendons, allowing the hand to absorb violent shocks. In one test, the researchers hit the hand with a baseball bat—a 66 G impact. The hand survived.

The video below shows the fingers moving and the hand getting hit by a hammer and a metal bar:


AMD Radeon HD 6990 Shows Up In Its Metallic Flesh, Looking Larger Than Life

AMD's much anticipated Radeon HD 6990 made a brief public appearance this weekend in a demo by the company's graphics team manager Matt Skynner. The executive whipped out the card while discussing the company’s APU technology, and while no actual details were revealed of the product itself, Japanese site 4gamer managed to get some close up shots of the massive dual-GPU card as well as a few details from reps at the event.

The card in question had one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCIe power connector, one CrossFireX connector for dual-card configurations, and one DVI port alonside four mini DisplayPort outputs. The card is also equipped with a backplate to help with heat dissipation, backed by a fan located directly in the middle and reportedly also a vapor chamber cooling system. It’s worth noting that this isn’t a production model, so we could still see some minor changes, specifically with the display output port configuration and probably the PCIe power connectors as well. 

In terms of performance, if previous leaks are legitimate, the graphics card will integrate 3840 stream processors and have 4GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.80GHz. That’s a significant leap from the previous-generation Radeon HD 5970's 3,200 stream processors and 2GB of RAM. Pricing info is not yet known but it's likely the Radeon HD 6990 will go over $500, which is the price tag of Nvidia's flagship card, the single-GPU GeForce GTX 580. 


Double USB Cable Plug Ends Wrong-sided Jamming Frustration

Designer Ma Yi Xuan's Double USB concept design is exactly how every USB plug should be, moving forward. No more shoving a USB cable into your computer the wrong way.

With the Double USB plug, Xuan's goal is to kill the frustration that would normally boil up whenever you plug a USB cable in the wrong way, only to have to flip it around. 

It appears a spring flips the fixed contact for data transfer inside of the USB head up and down, enabling universal plugging. The design fix is so simple that we hope the Universal Promoter Group (people in charge of USB) take note for future USB reference designs.

Break Times 2

While Mark was shopping for pet supplies, one of the salespeople came running up to him. “Mark! Mark! I just saw someone driving off with your BMW!
Dear God! Did your try to stop him?” 
No,” said the clerk, “but don’t worry. I got the license plate number!

Early one morning, a mother went in to wake up her son. "Wake up, son. It's time to go to school!"
"But why, Mom? I don't want to go."
"Give me two reasons why you don't want to go."
"Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me, too!"
"Oh, that's no reason not to go to school. Come on now and get ready."
"Give me two reasons why I should go to school."
"Well, for one, you're 52 years old. And for another, you're the Principal!"

The teacher says, “I wish you’d pay a little attention Mary.”
I am paying as little as I can Mrs. Bell,” said Mary.

A man gets home, runs into his house, slams the door and shouts, "Honey, I just won the lottery! Pack your bags!"
The wife says, "Great! What should I pack for? The ocean or the mountains?"
He says, "I don't care! Just be out by the end of the week!"

A man sat down and was seriously staring at the marriage certificate, after a long time his wife asked, “What are you looking for?" He replied, “The expiration date.

Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, "why is the bride dressed in white?" "Because white is the color of happiness," her mother explained. "And today is the happiest day in her life." The child thought about this for a moment. "So why is the groom wearing black?"


The Ghost Writer (2010)

The Ghost Writer (2010)
Matroska | 919.6 MiB | 1280x544 | AVC @ 951 Kbps | English | AAC LC-SBR-PS @ 48.0 KHz / 48.0 KHz / 24.0 KHz - 2 channels / 1 channel / 1 channel | 2h 8mn Genre: Mystery | Thriller

When a successful British ghost writer, THE GHOST, agrees to complete the memoirs of former British Prime Minister ADAM LANG, his agent assures him it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. But the project seems doomed from the start—not least because his predecessor on the project, Lang’s long—term aide, died in an unfortunate accident. The Ghost flies out to work on the project, in the middle of winter, to an oceanfront house on an island off the U.S. Eastern seaboard. But the day after he arrives, a former British cabinet minister accuses Lang of authorizing the illegal seizure of suspected terrorists and handing them over for torture by the CIA—a war crime. The controversy brings reporters and protesters swarming to the island mansion where Lang is staying with his wife, RUTH, and his personal assistant (and mistress), AMELIA. As The Ghost works, he begins to uncover clues suggesting his predecessor may have stumbled on a dark secret linking Lang to the CIA—and that somehow this information is hidden in the manuscript he left behind. Was Lang in the service of the American intelligence agency while he was prime minister? And was The Ghost’s predecessor murdered because of the appalling truth he uncovered? Resonating with topical themes, this atmospheric and suspenseful political thriller is a story of deceit and betrayal on every level— sexual, political and literary. In a world in which nothing, and no one, is as it seems, The Ghost quickly discovers that the past can be deadly—and that history is decided by whoever stays alive to write it.

Facebook And Germany Compromise On User Privacy

Facebook has reached an agreement with German privacy regulators over the use of Friend Finder, a tool which enables users to send the people in their email address books invitations to join Facebook. The move has been heavily criticized in privacy-conscious Germany and Facebook was asked to amend its practices. 

Facebook has now agreed to implement several changes to the way Friend Finder works which the authorities deemed sufficient.

The authorities criticized Facebook after receiving many complaints from non-Facebook users which kept receiving unsolicited invitations from their email contacts.

The Friend Finder tool is designed to enable users to invite their friends and other email contacts to join Facebook. Users provide their credentials to various email and instant messaging services and their contacts are imported by Facebook.

Users can then choose to invite their contacts. This is not done automatically, but the default action is to send invitations to all the contacts.

The imported contact data is also used to suggest friends that are already on Facebook.

Facebook has agreed to make it clearer for users what they are doing and to suggest that they only send invitations to the people they actually know and think they may want to receive them.

Another change may be to not select all contacts by default and to enable the users choose the ones they want to invite.

Facebook and the German authorities have been in talks for the past seven months. Initially, privacy regulators wanted Facebook to remove Friend Finder altogether, but the two sides have reached a compromise.

German data privacy authorities have had a long scuttle with Google over several issues. A request from the German officials resulted in the discovery of the public WiFi data collection in Street View cars.

Germany is also the only country where Google agreed to enable users to have their houses removed from Street View before the service went live there. 


Apple Is Launching The White iPhone 4

UK operators Orange and Three have updated their web sites to indicate that Apple is planning to ship the white version of its iPhone 4 relatively soon, with the two carriers offering customers the option to choose between the two configurations, storage capacity, and a wireless plan.

The news comes shortly after Best Buy and Vodafone Germany started showing the white iPhone 4 in their internal systems, followed by AT&T.

Without a doubt, this all adds up as confirmation that Apple fans are finally going to see the white iPhone 4 released to the masses.

As noted above, the most recent confirmation, comes from Britain’s two official iPhone carriers.

Both Three and Orange UK are making the White iPhone 4 as visible as possible on their respective web sites, offering the complete range of options as for any phone in their listings.

This is clear indication that the two carriers have heard of, or received a memo with Apple’s plans to launch the elusive handset sometime in the near future.

As reported in the past, Apple delayed the launch of its white iPhone 4 not once, but three times since the controversial handset was introduced in the summer of 2010.


Firefox, Chrome Get 'Do Not Track' Plugins

Mozilla and Google have taken the FTC's advice and give users a Do Not Track option when browsing. The former's Firefox and the latter's Chrome browsers will let users click a box that will then disable the browser's ability to track browsing history that is then used to send out targeted ads. Mozilla will take a header-based approach that its makers believe is more universal and clearer than cookies or blacklists. Users won't need to load ad networks and advertiser lists for this to work, either.

The problem with this approach, however, is that both the browser and websites that are being visited need to recognize the wish not to track browsing. 

Google's solution to the problem is Keep My Opt-Outs, a Chrome extension. It lets users opt out permanently from cookies that track ads but does rely on cookies and ad networks. With other methods, users would have to frequently ensure their opt-outs are current and as-desired. The mode will also allow blocking Flash cookies.

Google is making the code for the extension available to makers of other browsers, and is offering it on an open-source basis. 

Microsoft said it has plans to add a Do Not Track feature of its own back in December, called Tracking Protection.


Nvidia Wants Blisteringly Fast Quad-core Tablets By 2012

Tablets such as the Motorola Xoom are just beginning to get dual-core processors. A leaked Nvidia slide shows that quad-core processors could be out as early as next year.

Nvidia's Tegra 2 platform is finally making its way into many products, but that doesn't mean Nvidia is sitting still. It's Tegra 3 mobile processor will purportedly have a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, which is twice as fast as the Tegra 2.

If the leaked road-map is true, silky smooth Blu-Ray decoding and the driving of monitors with high-resolutions could be on the horizon. What always interests us the most is how developers will utilize the extra raw processing power. Multitasking and more open apps are the expected benefits of more cores, but what else? What about battery life in tablets with these blistering fast chips?
