From the front lines:

Turns out AT&T does have some kind of bizarre department for small business. Anyway converting DSL lines to the U-verse service is fruitful and who knows maybe some decent speed increase will come from it. I swear I have one client who gets a straight up 12/12

Science Fiction to Fact:

Google Inc. GOOG +3.14% plans to help create a new laboratory to study quantum computing, a high-profile endorsement of the esoteric technology—and a Canadian company that has been pursuing it since 1999. An unusual supercooled machine built by D-Wave Systems Inc., of Vancouver, British Columbia, will be installed at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Ames Research Center, near Google’s campus in Mountain View, Calif. It will be operated by the nonprofit Universities Space Research Association.

Not just me: from the google i/o event: Page also addresses Google’s interest in developing super-fast Internet services in a few cities. He says it’s sad that there’s a lot of computing power out there, but “they are connected to each other through a tiny, tiny pipe that’s super slow.” He says that means most of those powerful computers “can’t be used for anything useful.”

Gmail will soon let you send money via email !

sending money straight from email is going to be a great time saver.
