How links get updated at the biggest sites goes a long way toward determining the shape of the Web, according to a Web simulation that jibes with the real thing. You always knew the people at Yahoo had a little too much power...

Quantum bit hangs tough
A single bit that survives fractions of a second longer than its predecessor points the way to quantum computers that can withstand the rigors of a noisy environment.

Sowing strain reaps ordered dots
A little stress is a good way to keep quantum dots in line.
