What makes a better chess boxer, a boxer who can think strategically or a chess player who can throw a punch?
According to Laura Pannack, a photographer who shot a series of chess boxer portraits at the London Chessboxing Championships last year, there’s no way to tell.
“You never know what forms a chess boxer,” she says. “You can tell [the participants] come from lot of different backgrounds and I found that incredibly refreshing.”

GUYS. CHESSBOXING IS A THING. SEE?

Lockheed Martin bought a version of D-Wave’s quantum computer and plans to upgrade it to commercial scale.
“Quantum computing is so much faster than traditional computing because of the unusual properties of particles at the smallest level. Instead of the precision of ones and zeros that have been used to represent data since the earliest days of computers, quantum computing relies on the fact that subatomic particles inhabit a range of states. Different relationships among the particles may coexist, as well. Those probable states can be narrowed to determine an optimal outcome among a near-infinitude of possibilities, which allows certain types of problems to be solved rapidly.”

Major security hole allows Apple passwords to be reset with only email address, date of birth
Apple yesterday rolled out two-step verification, a security measure that promises to further shield Apple ID and iCloud accounts from being hijacked. Unfortunately, today a new exploit has been discovered that affects all customers who haven’t yet enabled the new feature. It allows anyone with your email address and date of birth to reset your password — using Apple’s own tools.
