millions of nodes with only a handful of connections,
makes it fertile ground for computer viruses.
What's worse, even the weakest of viruses

stamp leaves electronic mark
Put a gold-plated rubber stamp on a thin film of

The expertise needed to identify people by their

computer near you.
transistor means changeable chips
If magnetic transistors come to pass, you might
be able to upgrade your computer without even opening
distill quantum bits
Researchers are looking for a good stiff shot of
well-entangled particles. A distillation technique
offers to serve up the good stuff.
