Excited to launch a Quantum Virtual Machine which emulates the experience and results of programming one of our quantum computers. It will make it easier for researchers to prototype new algorithms and help students learn how to program a quantum computer.

1st-gen Surface Pro X has a 'SQ1' SoC, which is a Microsoft-customized Qualcomm 8cx, IIRC.

Throttles down from 3.0 to 2.35 GHz under heavy load, like a compile; as a tablet, it has no active cooling. Back is warm to the touch, not too hot.

Very interesting approach to storing hydrogen in films which can be released when laser falls on them. Interesting alternative to battery and relatively safer way to store hydrogen.
