Computer Hospital is busy with sales and even rebooting old computers. Grizzard said they can barely keep computers in stock.

”That’s where we’ve really ramped up. Older machines that people were no longer using but now they need them,” said Grizzard. ”Supply and demand definitely changed. We were selling out of everything. It’s hard to keep stuff now.”

The team at Quantum Resistant Ledger (QRL), a post-Quantum value store and decentralized communication layer, notes that there’s recently been what appears to be “another quantum leap” in the field of quantum computing.

The QRL team states:

“The team at @ustc potentially achieved ‘quantum supremacy’ one million times greater than the record currently held by Sycamore. Things can advance quickly and unexpectedly, and $QRL is ready for it, today.”

As reported by the SCMP, China now claims that it has taken “a quantum leap” with a machine that may be able to process information a million times faster than Google’s latest quantum computer, called Sycamore.

Mad Mike’s in Traverse City refurbishes and sells used laptops.

Owner Mike Tusin says right now business is up because new devices are becoming harder to get your hands on.

“Some of the laptops that we get, our used ones, I buy them from one particular reseller. This guy usually has hundreds if not thousands of laptops in stock and I’m lucky is he has thirty or forty at any given point in time,” says Tusin.

He says instead of buying brand new, repairing an old laptop could be more cost effective, and improve the device’s lifespan.B51f2311 A6b6 485f 953d 221be9d2113d

“For most people it’s cheaper to fix something and we can make things that are only a few years old, we can make them actually faster than new for a fraction of the money,” Tusin said.
