IBM To Launch 53-Qubit Quantum Computer That’s The Most Powerful Machine The Public Can Use

IBM is planning to make its new industry-leading quantum computer open for use by companies and independent researchers in October. The machine, which boasts 53 quantum bits or qubits, will be accessible to the public via the cloud next month. The Most Powerful Computer The Public Can Use According to news release from the company, IBM's new 53-qubit quantum computer is the largest universal quantum system to be available for open access in the whole industry. CNET noted that the new computer is a big leap from the previous model of IBM Q, which featured just 20 qubits. The new machine is expected to help bridge the merging of traditional computers and quantum physics. IBM Research director Dario Gil explained that the strategy of the company has always been to allow quantum computing to move beyond isolated laboratory experiments by a limited number of organizations. Instead, the company wants to bring technology to thousands of new users. "In order to empower an emerging quantum community of educators, researchers, and software developers that share a passion for revolutionizing computing, we have built multiple generations of quantum processor platforms that we integrate into high-availability quantum systems," Gil continued. "We iterate and improve the performance of our systems multiple times per year and this new 53-qubit system now incorporates the next family of processors on our roadmap." Google is known for having a 72-qubit machine, as the MIT Technology Review noted, but the company has yet to allow external users to get their hands on it. Other companies with quantum computers, most notably Rigetti Computing and D-Wave, have already opened cloud services as well. IBM Opens Quantum Computation Center In line with its efforts to advance quantum computing, IBM opened the doors to the IBM Quantum Computation Center in New York State on Wednesday, Sept. 18. It's a data center of the company's quantum machines housing 10 machines as of now: five 20-qubit systems, four 5-qubit systems, and one 14-qubit system. Within the next month, the center's quantum fleet will grow to 14 systems, including the ultra-powerful 53-qubit system. While scientists and companies are still trying to perfect the art of quantum computing, it is an important part of the future. It could pave the way to future advancements in medicine, optimization of supply chains, and even financial data and investments.

Texas Is Drowning Under One of the Wettest Storms in US History

Record-breaking rainfall from the tropical storm Imelda is soaking southeastern Texas. Some areas have been swamped with 20 to 42 inches (51 to 107 centimeters) of rain over just three days, causing catastrophic flooding that is among the worst in U.S. history. Imelda, the first named storm to strike this part of Texas since 2017's devastating Hurricane Harvey, is currently the fifth-wettest tropical storm to drench the contiguous U.S., The Weather Channel tweeted today (Sept. 19). Storms that drop this much rain are estimated to appear once in a millennium, according to precipitation models created by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). But the last 1,000-year-rainfall to inundate Texas was Hurricane Harvey — which slammed the state just two years ago. The unrelenting rain caused "significant and life-threatening flash flooding," the National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported this morning, leading Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to declare a state of disaster in 13 counties. To put this quantify of rain into perspective, 41 inches (104 cm) over a two-month period would be considered exceptional in this part of Texas, said meteorologist Eric Holthaus in a tweet. Such an event would happen about once in a century "in a stable climate," Holthaus said. But recent and accelerating climate change is thought to foster conditions that make seasonal tropical storms wetter, windier and potentially more destructive, Live Science previously reported. Photos and videos shared on social media show grim scenes of the historic flooding: highways completely submerged under choppy waves and search-and-rescue operations to save people trapped by the floods. In a video tweeted by Katherine Marchand, a reporter with ABC-13 Houston, a man floats down U.S. Highway 59 South, clinging to a pool noodle. ...

EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT THE PIXEL 4, THE MOST-LEAKED PHONE EVER

SHARE All sharing options Google’s Pixel 3 might have been the most-leaked phone in history. Long before its unveiling, we knew practically everything about it from unboxing videos, photo comparisons, even a full review of the device. Surely, for the Pixel 4, Google would clamp down on leaks to leave some surprises for its debut on October 15th, right? Let’s just say, if that was the plan, it didn’t exactly work out. We’ve now seen the Pixel 4 XL from every angle and in three different colors. At least seven different sources have touched this phone, many of them confirming the same specs. We not only know which cameras it’ll have, but also what they may be capable of, including air gestures (go figure). That doesn’t even count information Google has already shared on purpose. So if you want to know almost everything about the Pixel 4 nearly a month before it’s announced, buckle up. We’ve sifted through all of the rumors and information we can find to compile everything we know — and everything we think we know — about Google’s upcoming flagship into one gigantic post. INDUSTRIAL DESIGN What we know: It’s got a big camera square around back, a huge top bezel up front to house all its sensors, and a prominent black band around the sides. What we think we know: Thanks to an unprecedented number of leaks, we can show you what appears to be the Pixel 4 XL from practically every angle. What we don’t know: The fingerprint reader. Is there one? The industrial design for the Pixel 4 isn’t much of a mystery because Google showed us a preview back in June: Right away, we can tell Google has moved away from its previous Pixel design language. The two-tone matte glass back is gone, replaced with a sleeker monolithic design with no fingerprint divot — almost like an iPhone. And that’s before we consider that it’s got an iPhone 11-like camera square: a prominent rounded square housing at the top left of the device with at least two prominent cameras inside. ...

Door Security – How to Make Your Doors Less Prone to Break Ins

Whether you have a home of commercial building, ensuring your door security is one of the most important aspects. You always want peace of mind that your doors will not be easy to break in. There are many things that you can do to your doors making them more safe and secure. However, when you want that great elegant look and need security with it, you have to do much more. Glass doors and windows for example look great and can be pretty secure as well. Tempered Glass doors and windows in modern homes and commercial buildings are usually the best choice. You can also go with laminated glass, which is another even more durable and secure option. These are known to have very high durability level. Even when broken, their custom nature leaves behind sharp shards that are impossible to work with for break-in experts. Plexiglass sheets for doors and windows on the other hand don't leave behind sharp shards. But these are available in very thick levels making the much durable and hard to damage. Here are few precautions that you can take ensuring best door security for your home or commercial buildings: It is easy to think glass as fragile and other materials like woods being stronger. Although it is true and also, many homes and offices can simply not have metallic doors, glass presents a different kind of security. Choosing the right type of glass for your doors can help you a great deal. Tempered glass door panels and also laminated glass ones specialize in their own take on security. These are first of all much stronger than many people give them credit for. Proper glass types can be even stronger than some woods when you buy them from the right suppliers. Custom Cut Glass for doors and windows in tempered or laminated form can be great. Even when someone does manage to crack or break it, its likely to leave sharp shards behind. This makes someone entering without permission deter away as risks of cuts and injuries are too great. Not necessarily every home or commercial building will have glass doors. Even when you have wooden ones, there can be gadgets that can help you a great deal. Door Knob Jammers are some such examples. These tend to keep the door locked until you open the lock with a key. You also need to ensure proper placement of a door knob jammer on the inside of your doors. Placing them outside can be a waste of money and time. Door knob locks are allowed to turn when opened with the key and not when they are tried to be messed with. ...

Here’s why so many apps are asking to use Bluetooth on iOS 13

Apple’s new iOS 13 update adds a new privacy measure that requires apps to get your consent in order to use your device’s Bluetooth. After installing the latest version of iOS, trust me when I say you’ll be surprised by the number of apps asking for Bluetooth permission the next time you open them. Some might seem very strange (like Dunkin’ Donuts in my case), but others probably won’t make you think twice about giving the thumbs-up. The reason Apple implemented this is because Bluetooth has enabled companies to sneakily track your location over Bluetooth by using beacons in stores, shopping malls, and even on popular city streets if they’re placed within range of a place you’d walk by. This is entirely separate from your iPhone’s location privacy settings, which makes it seem all the more underhanded. A beacon is very easily able to detect your device’s Bluetooth chip and log that with a retailer or some other app on your phone. So getting more strict about Bluetooth is a good move by Apple to prevent unwanted tracking of its customers. Similarly, the company is also getting even more transparent about location, showing you on a map how often and where apps have recorded your position. This prompt is much easier to understand, and will probably startle people into slimming down the list of apps that can monitor where they are. As it should! But there’s more room for confusion around the Bluetooth prompt. At the most basic level, I think some iPhone owners are going to wonder and maybe even assume that they must grant Bluetooth permission for music and other media apps to continue working with their Bluetooth earbuds, headphones, or speakers. It’s a reasonable question when you see that an app “would like to use Bluetooth.” (To be clear, you don’t have to. Bluetooth audio is handled through system settings, is separate from apps, and will continue working for apps that you deny permission for.) ...

Tesla confirms Model S Plaid ~7:20 time at Nürburgring, making improvements and coming back

Tesla has confirmed that the new Model S Plaid prototype is making the previously reported ~7:20 time at the Nürburgring racetrack, and the automaker sees an incredible 7:05 as achievable next month. As we previously reported, following the recent launch of the Porsche Taycan, Tesla CEO Elon Musk appears to be on a mission to show that Tesla’s vehicles are still the highest-performing EVs available today. Last week, he said that Tesla would bring a Model S to the Nürburgring race track — right after Porsche established a new 4-door electric car record at the track. However, in the following days, Tesla announced a Model S with a 3-motor “Plaid powertrain” and new a “chassis prototype.” Musk also said that Tesla has a new 7-seater Model S prototype at the Nürburgring racetrack, and it seems like the track testing could simply be about testing new versions of Tesla’s Model S and the new 3-motor “Plaid Powertrain” instead of going after the Taycan. However, it was reported earlier this week that the Tesla “Plaid” Model S prototype crushed Porsche Taycan’s Nürburgring time, according to a witness at the track. The witness calculated that the Model S beat the Porsche Taycan by about 20 seconds with a 7:23 time. Now Tesla confirmed that its own data shows that the “Model S Plaid” can achieve a 7:20 time: Tesla probably cannot say that it “achieved” the record time because Nürburgring doesn’t allow official times outside of specific racing sessions. But more surprisingly, the automaker says that it plans to return to the track next month, and they see the potential for an impressive 7:05 time. ...

Developer Confirms Apple Watch Series 5 Has The Same CPU As Its Predecessor And 1 GB RAM

Apple just wrapped up its September event where it unveiled a couple of new products, including the Apple Watch Series 5. Aside from the new ceramic and titanium materials, always-on Retina display, and other features, the company didn't really expand on what's under the wearable's hood. Now developer Steve Troughton-Smith found out more concrete details of the smartwatch's specs. Apple Watch Series 5 Specs Using Apple's IDE (integrated development environment) Xcode, Troughton-Smith discovered that the Apple Watch Series 5 shares a lot of similarities with its predecessor, the Apple Watch Series 4. According to the developer, the Cupertino brand's latest smartwatch has the same-generation CPU and GPU as the previous model. He also confirms that the wearable has 1 GB of RAM. On an interesting note, another user chimes in to say that the Apple Watch Series 5 also has the same battery capacity as the Apple Watch Series 4. iPhone 11, 10.2-Inch iPad RAM Needless to say, Apple didn't just take the wraps off the Apple Watch Series 5 at its September event and called it a day. It also unveiled a trio of new iPhones and squeezed in an announcement for the new 10.2-inch iPad. As is the norm for the company, it didn't reveal all the core specs of these devices that users want to know, particularly the amount of RAM. Now Troughton-Smith also found out that the 10.2-inch iPad has 3 GB of RAM. On top of that, he has also confirmed that the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max have 4 GB of RAM across the board, which falls in line with the findings of early benchmark tests.

The techlash isn’t big enough to stop Facebook from selling video chat devices for your living room

A year ago, when Facebook launched its own video chat device, it seemed like a clueless move by an out-of-touch tech giant: Under fire for abusing its users’ privacy, Facebook was still stumbling forward with a video camera that would surveil its users in their homes. Who would want that? Plenty of people, Facebook seems to be insisting: Rather than walk away from its Portal devices, Facebook is pushing out more of them, including one that’s supposed to let your friends watch you watching Facebook videos on your TV. But wait! That’s not all. Facebook has also confirmed that when you bark a command at a Portal, Facebook contractors may end up listening to what you say. Facebook’s rollout of the new Portal devices is both puzzling and par for the course in 2019, when big tech companies are condemned for the way they treat their users and their personal information, yet remain committed to business plans that depend on users’ data. It also underscores why it’s legitimately confusing to assess the pervasiveness of the “techlash” that journalists and others have been talking about for the past three years. On the one hand, it seems as if tech companies are in the midst of a long-overdue reckoning, forced upon them by some combination of the press, regulators, and actual consumers. On the other hand, in their day-to-day activities, many consumers seem okay with giant tech companies — or, at least, they aren’t upset with them to the point where they’ve stopped using them in meaningful numbers. This dissonance is anywhere you look. Like this site, for instance: Today my colleague Emily Stewart reports on a poll that suggests that two-thirds of Americans are in favor of breaking up big tech companies like Facebook, Amazon, and Google. But there’s no evidence that two-thirds of Americans are signaling their discontent in any way that’s more meaningful than responding to a poll — or complaining about the platforms on the platforms themselves. Sure, things can change. It’s possible, for instance, that while tech has yet to command much attention in settings like the Democratic presidential debates, it could play a significant role in the 2020 elections. And that the winners of those races will be emboldened to rein in the big tech platforms. There is also a very good possibility that any tech regulation that passes — if any regulation passes at all — will end up reinforcing the dominance of the current tech giants, which is one of the criticisms you often hear about European privacy regulations that recently went into effect. ...

VW Crozz (ID.4) Price Could Undercut Tesla Model Y By ~$24,000

Volkswagen seems to suggest the Crozz will be as cheap as a Tiguan. Volkswagen has been touting its upcoming lineup of EVs for years. It claims it can build compelling EVs — even better in every way than those that Tesla produces — in mass-market volume at affordable prices. But when? And, how affordable? We still don't have those answers for sure, and we can tell you that the automaker's first new EV is not even being released on our shores. However, eventually, the U.S. will get a compact SUV based on the Crozz concept. It won't be called the Crozz at launch, but perhaps the ID.4x. According to a recent article by Green Car Reports, Volkswagen of America CEO Scott Keogh suggested that the company's goal is "apple to apples" when it comes to upcoming U.S. EV pricing as compared to current gas-powered models. However, Keogh's wording was more than a bit confusing. You'll notice that he starts a sentence with "when." We're not so sure how to interpret that. Does "when" suggest that VW won't bring the ID.4 to market until it can reach such price parity with its gas-powered models? At any rate, he said at the Frankfort Motor Show: “Our goal is to make the comparison to a comparable internal combustion car—for example, versus a Tiguan. When I can put these two apples to apples. I think that is positioning it for the masses.” The CEO also walks around a question about whether the U.S. federal EV tax credit is a factor, along with mentioning something about including "price of ownership" and "all that." We're not sure what "all that" refers to either: “These are all things we’ll get to ... and I think I would include the price of ownership and all that.” Similarly, Tesla includes cost of ownership and potential EV savings in its pricing on its website, as well as showing the actual purchase price without savings. To give you some idea of how this could all work out, the 2019 Tiguan starts at $24,295, excluding destination. If the Crozz (ID.4x) came in around this price point, it would undercut the Tesla Model 3 by some $10,000 and the upcoming Model Y by a whopping ~$24,000! Even if VW is factoring in potential savings, the Model Y would still cost ~$19,000 more. Additionally, while the Model Y won't qualify for the federal tax credit, the Crozz may, as long as the incentive still exists once the crossover finally comes to market. If VW is considering the $7,500 in pricing, then the starting price of the Crozz be more like $32,000, though more if VW is talking about the price after potential savings. ...

Here are 9 of the best new features coming to your iPhone on Thursday

Apple's iOS 13 update for iPhones, launching on Thursday, brings a handful of new features like dark mode, additional privacy controls, and a redesigned Photos app, among other changes. I used the beta version of iOS 13 for a couple of months and found these to be some of the most useful features. You don't have to buy the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro to get some of Apple's newest smartphone features. Apple's iOS 13 update, launching Thursday, brings a slew of new capabilities to iPhones models dating back to the 6S, including the iPhone SE. Apple announced the software update at its Worldwide Developers Conference in early June, and it made an early, unfinished version of the software, known as a beta, available to the public later that month. With this year's update, Apple has placed a big emphasis on privacy and improving the iPhone's core apps like Photos and Maps. I used iOS 13 for a couple of months, and these are some of the best features I've come across. This is by no means a comprehensive list, and it will be difficult to ascertain how useful some of the more notable additions like "Sign in with Apple" are until developers support it. But here's a brief look at some of the updates I've found to be the most helpful. ...

Canadian PM Trudeau Apologizes For Brownface Costume At 2001 Party

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is apologizing for having worn brownface makeup at a 2001 costume party. "I should have known better then, but I didn't and I did it and I'm deeply sorry," he said to reporters in his campaign plane in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The revelation was first reported by Time magazine late Wednesday which published a picture of Trudeau wearing a turban and robe with dark makeup on his face, neck and hands for an Arabian Nights-themed party at a private school where he taught before entering politics. Speaking of the Aladdin costume and makeup he wore when he was 29-years-old, Trudeau said, "It was a dumb thing to do." "I'm pissed off at myself, I'm disappointed in myself," he added. The prime minister who just launched his reelection campaign a week ago also admitted that there was another time he had worn makeup. Trudeau said he did it in a high school talent show while singing the Harry Belafonte song, "Banana Boat Song (Day-O)." Reaction from Trudeau's political opponent was immediate. Canada's Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, who is challenging Trudeau in the Oct. 21 federal election, said the prime minister's photo was racist in 2001 and is racist in 2019. "What Canadians saw this evening was someone with a complete lack of judgment and integrity and someone who is not fit to govern this country," said Scheer as quoted by the Associated Press. Trudeau, who said he has worked all of his life against racism and intolerance, said he recognizes the brownface makeup was "racist."

Watch Tesla’s new Model S shred tires on Nürburgring racetrack

A new video of Tesla testing its new modified Model S on the Nürburgring racetrack has been released, and it shows the electric car shredding some tires ahead of a record attempt. As we previously reported, following the recent launch of the Porsche Taycan, Tesla CEO Elon Musk appears to be on a mission to show that Tesla’s vehicles are still the highest-performing EVs available today. Last week, he said that Tesla would bring a Model S to Nürburgring race track — right after Porsche established a new 4-door electric car record at the track. Over the last day, we have learned that Tesla is actually testing a newer performance version of the Model S. Tesla announced a Model S with a 3-motor “Plaid powertrain” and new a “chassis prototype.” Musk also said that Tesla has a new 7-seater Model S prototype at the Nürburgring racetrack. Now Automotive Mike, a photographer at the Nürburgring racetrack, released a video of a Model S tested by Tesla at the track during the industry pool day: However, it’s not clear if this is the new Model S with the 3-electric motor “Plaid Powertrain.” Tesla has brought several Model S vehicles to the Nürburgring racetrack, and while several of them are modified, it’s unclear if they all have the new powertrain or the 7-seat configuration. Also, unlike the title of the video, it’s unlikely that Tesla is actually going for a record here. It wouldn’t be hard since there are other vehicles on the track, and it wouldn’t be official during the industry pool day. However, if it’s not an attempt at a record lap, it is certainly a hot lap, because Tesla is pushing the vehicle hard in this video. As we previously reported, the Porsche Taycan completed the notoriously difficult 20.6 km track in 7 minutes and 42 seconds — claiming the “fastest four-door, all-electric sports cars” record. At the Laguna Seca racetrack, the new version of the Model S completed a 1:36.555 lap time — achieving a new record lap for a four-door sedan. ...

Apple reveals iPhone 11 with a dual-camera system, Night mode, and new colors

Apple is introducing a successor to its iPhone XR today, dubbed iPhone 11. The cheaper LCD-equipped iPhone XR has become the most popular iPhone in the world over the past year, and Apple is now updating it for 2019 and beyond. Like last year’s model, the iPhone 11 includes a 6.1-inch display, and the design is almost identical to last year, too, with the notch at the front for the Face ID camera. Apple is adding new color options, with purple, white, green, yellow, black, and red all available. Apple’s biggest design changes are in the camera at the rear of the device. Last year’s iPhone XR had a single 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, but the iPhone 11 now includes a dual-camera system with an additional 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera that supports 2x optical zoom. There’s even a new immersive camera interface that lets you see outside the frame, so you can see the details of the photos you’re taking with the ultra-wide camera.

Apple tipped to reopen its flagship NYC store when the iPhone 11 goes on sale

In case you haven't already heard, it's going to be a big week for Apple: on Tuesday we're expecting the company to unveil the new iPhone 11 handsets for 2019, the Apple Watch 5, and maybe a few more goodies as well. Ahead of the launch event, a few late rumors have reached our ears – namely that the iPhone 11 will be available to preorder on September 13, and go on sale on September 20. That would match the schedule from previous years. And "a personal familiar with the matter" told AppleInsider that Apple is planning to mark the occasion (the iPhone 11 going on sale) by reopening its flagship Fifth Avenue store in New York. The latest on the Google Pixel 4 IFA 2019 – the best of what we saw Why we might see an iPhone SE 2 The store was shuttered in 2017 for renovations, but this weekend the iconic glass cube that marks the entrance was revealed – and it's sporting a rainbow-colored wrap, which fits with the colorful invites Apple has sent out for September 10. Speaking of the launch event, it's been revealed that the iPhone 11 launch is going to be streamed live on YouTube for the first time – you can see the video embedded above, ready to go on the big day. Previously, interested parties have been able to watch the event through the Apple website and live on Twitter, but YouTube is a first for 2019 – and quite a surprise, considering it's a Google property. That gives you yet another way to tune into the action, and we will of course be bringing you all the announcements as they're made right here on TechRadar. The event gets underway at 10am PT / 1pm ET, which is 6pm in London and 3am the next day (September 11) in Sydney. Among the big upgrades we're expecting this time around is an improved rear camera array, housed in an unconventional square frame on the back of the iPhone.

Microsoft’s first PowerToys for Windows 10 now available to download

Microsoft revealed earlier this year that PowerToys were coming back to Windows 10. PowerToys used to be useful little utilities that would let you further customize Windows, and now Microsoft is releasing two new utilities for Windows 10 under the PowerToys brand. The first is a Windows key shortcut guide that is a full screen overlay with dynamic shortcuts for each active window or app. You can use the utility to hold down the Windows key and discover keyboard shortcuts, and it’s useful if you’re not familiar with most of the built-in Windows keyboard shortcuts or you want to find quicker ways to get things done in certain apps. The second utility is a FancyZones window manager, and you’ll definitely want to check this out if you like to run multiple apps side-by-side. You can set custom zones and then simply drag and drop apps into these layouts to have them automatically resize. It’s great if you really want to customize your desktop and window management even further on Windows 10. Microsoft has even created a 5-minute tutorial video to step through all the different ways you can use FancyZones. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to work well with multiple monitor setups right now, though. Windows fans were happy to see the return of PowerToys earlier this year, and these two utilities mark the first release of this effort for Windows 10. Microsoft is making them available open source on GitHub, and there will be many more to follow. Microsoft is now embracing this enthusiasm for PowerToys to let the community contribute and make some powerful Windows 10 utilities. “When the PowerToys project was first announced this spring, we didn’t think the reception would be as enthusiastic as it has been,” explains Microsoft’s dev platform team. “Given this enthusiasm, we’re anticipating many developers will want to contribute to PowerToys, and we’ve made sure that the documentation, project architecture, and tools are ready for the community to dive in.” You can download FancyZones and the Windows key shortcut guide utilities as part of the new PowerToys project over at GitHub.
