  • Generall interesting show on the new M1 Macs. I do have one correction. While I am not a physicist I do work in the quantum computing industry and a a quit does not have four states; if that were the case then one qubit is basically just two bits and that would hardly be the potential revolution that quantum computing is.

    A qubit, in principal, has an infinite number of states that collapse to either zero or one when the qubit is measured. This potentially allows a relatively small number of qubits to perform a vast number of calculations simultaneously.

    The q in qubit comes from quantum mechanics and the quantum in quantum mechanics is a form of the Latin “quantum” or “how much?”. When physicists realized that certain physical properties can only take on discrete values not continuous values they referred to the property as being “quantized”; hence quantum mechanics.

    None of this has to do with “Quad” or four.
