Technology's holy grail is the development of a \"perfect\" Quantum Computer. Traditional computers recognize information as bits: binary information representing \"On\" or \"Off\" states. A quantum computer uses qubits: operating in superposition, a qubit exists in all states simultaneously -- not just

Traffic alerts on GPS devices may be old hat at this point, but there's obviously still plenty of room for improvement, and IBM now says it's managed to do just that with its new \"Smarter Traveler\" traffic prediction tool. Developed with the help of UC Berkeley's transportation group and the Califo

As you may have been able to tell from the flurry of research that's occurred over the past few years (which has even resulted in a Nobel Prize), there's plenty of folks betting on graphene as the next big thing for computing. One of the big players in that respect has been IBM, which first opened u

It's just been a little over a week since IBM researchers announced that they managed to open up a bandgap for graphene-based field-effect transistors, but they're now already back to show off what that's made possible: a 100GHz graphene transistor. What's more, this latest record-setting transistor
