For the proponents of the theory that computer will be able to mimick humans in every way:
1. (a) computers may pick the various sensory stimuli as we do, but will they be able to "FEEL" it, as we do?
(b) Even though signals traveling from our sense receptors two our brains travel as measurable electrical signals, it is 'the brain' that interprets them as FEELINGS. We FEEL hot, cold, pain etc. This creates 'sensitivity' in us, and promotes the advocacy of morals and ethics. A computer on the other hand being a product of wires and circuitry cannot realize the complex phenomenon of FEELINGS or the rationale behind morals or ethics.
2. Humans are diverse creatures, capable of forming 'entirely different' thoughts, philosophies, and perceptions relative to each other: even with the very similar sensory stimuli and genetic composition. We are also capable of BELIEVING in things with and without reason, and capable of following our rational and irrational desires.
Without FEELINGS or Original Thought or morals, or desires, or unpredictability computers will just cease to stay mere calculating machines that serve no more than what they are created for, things that cannot be held accountable for, punished, or rewarded.

One objective of invention is to make a task more efficient or affective. One level of evolution, natural or otherwise, is the application of invention to all human tasks. In that respect machine will be made to complete most human tasks, if not all. So in the end the differences will be very small. I am not even sure we could claim that some organic matter that is part of us will not be part of them because if it is found that, for instance, an organic hand and its mechanisms play tennis better than a non-organic, well then there will be machines with organic hands perhaps in the very same likeness as ours. I suppose the differences will be things which we posses that are not essential for any given task, or things which they posses which we are not physically able to. Perhaps the only thing we will posses that they will not, with some certainty, is a soul. But we have yet to determine what of any real value this thing has anyway so it's neither here nor there.

1) The wave particle duality concept is crap. It was an abomination in Physics and existed prior to the theory of Quantum Electro Dynamics. There is no duality. Photon is a particle. It just behaves probabilistically. This is very similar to what happened in the 19th century with electrons and the Maxwell’s equation.
2) Quantum computing will not always lead to an increase in speed. There are some special classes of problems where DNA and Quantum Computers can do wonders. These are typically Multi path routing problems (like the Traveling Salesman Problem).
In case of problems that need a linear search. The benefits of Quantum computing may be limited
3) Quantum computing is a complicated subject and is based on the application of q-bits (quantum bits). Let me try to explain it in a simpler way. Our current technology is based on transistors which basically work like switches and have just two states ON (1) or OFF (0). We also have tri state buffers but these are not logical design components. The issue here is that we are just using the flow of current for our device. Current is comprised of electrons and an electron has other properties like spin but we don’t use that. So as of now for our microchips, an electron has to "flow" to cause an effect and hence 200 electrons may cause just one bit to change. But instead if we make a device that also uses the charge and spin on an electron then the same 200 electrons can hold potentially 200 bits of information. This will be a drastic increase in our processing capability. However, because of the uncertainty associated with quantum mechanics, we cannot use Boolean algebra for computation. We have to rely on a more robust Vector space analysis.

I don't know what you mean "right and wrong". Science is the most general and effective means known to discover the way the world is. Technology (e.g. making antibiotics to cure diseases) is something else - it is there that the value judgments come in, because the same scientific finding (e.g. that compound X kills’ microorganism Y) supports at least two technologies. Either: kill Y by exposing them to X, or: keep Y alive by preventing them from being exposed to X. This is why science is morally neutral.
Simple fundamental of quantum computing is that, as per wave particle duality in quantum physics a matter can occupy a wave nature or particle nature depends upon the experiment we carried out with it. Same analogy with quantum computer in classical sense the memory-field of a computer is either filled up by '0' or by '1'. But in quantum computing both memory states can be occupied simultaneously. Such computers are very fast to perform an operation than classical computer like in normal cases. Google search engine took 0.10- 0.25 seconds to find out any web page with any keyword. But if quantum algorithms are implemented- this time will change into micro-seconds and will require much less memory than it is now. But this area is under vast research and no such computer is developed so far, but in near future we may succeed.

Guys I came across an article about IBM's New venture and hope it will help you to know about new technology. IBM researchers from the T.J. Watson Research Center reached a significant milestone in the quest to send information between the "brains" on a chip using pulses of light through silicon instead of electrical signals on copper wires. The breakthrough -- a significant advancement in the field of "Silicon Nano photonics" -- uses pulses of light rather than electrical wires to transmit information between different processors on a single chip, significantly reducing cost, energy and heat while increasing communications bandwidth between the cores more than a hundred times over wired chips.
The new technology aims to enable a power-efficient method to connect hundreds or thousands of cores together on a tiny chip by eliminating the wires required to connect them. Using light instead of wires to send information between the cores can be as much as 100 times faster and use 10 times less power than wires, potentially allowing hundreds of cores to be connected together on a single chip, transforming today's large supercomputers into tomorrow's tiny chips while consuming significantly less power.
IBM's optical modulator performs the function of converting a digital electrical signal carried on a wire, into a series of light pulses, carried on a silicon Nano photonic waveguide.
First, an input laser beam (marked by red color) is delivered to the optical modulator. The optical modulator (black box with IBM logo) is basically a very fast "shutter" which controls whether the input laser is blocked or transmitted to the output waveguide.
When a digital electrical pulse (a "1" bit marked by yellow) arrives from the left at the modulator, a short pulse of light is allowed to pass through at the optical output on the right.
When there is no electrical pulse at the modulator (a "0" bit), the modulator blocks light from passing through at the optical output.
In this way, the device "modulates" the intensity of the input laser beam.
A picture hosting service allows individuals to upload images to an Internet website. The image host will then store the image onto its server, and show the individual different types of code to allow others to view that image. Typically image hosting websites provide an upload interface; a form in which you specify the location of an image file on your local computer file system (using a browse button). After pressing a “Upload” button the file is uploaded to the image host’s server. Some image hosts allow you to specify multiple files at once, in this form, or the ability to upload one ZIP file containing multiple images. The Pict is a new website for image hosting service. You can upload many numbers of images from local computer, other system and from URL. After this process, your image is hosted on their server. This photo hosting network allows you to link images with HTML code, linking with BBcode and a click able thumbnail that is linked to the full image. This photo hosting service allows you to save to you email and export any where in Internet. Image hosts also allow tools such as the ability to create photo blogs or galleries with your images, or add them to a sideshow for easier viewing. Upload as many photos in Pict.com and have fun with your friends.
As of now EVEN with our limited knowledge we can assure that there are (were) no two human beings alike. For that matter existence of two similar objects (any objects even in their lowest form of existence) itself is a highly improbable possibility. Of course, I am talking on gene to gene and atom to atom basis. My point is if there are this many of constraints in forming two similar objects with the limited combinations why we can’t expect that WE ARE UNIQUE. Let u be the creator and just compare the combinations (of ???) you have for the manufacture of a human body with that of a planet like ours(hey just consider the physical aspects, otherwise you'll end up in messing all kinds of things, and that’s altogether a different science). So just imagine how improbable it is to have two sets of similar conditions which caused to the rise of life in its present form. Finally my point is simple. "As long as u don’t expect the one very similar to you (again on gene to gene and atom to atom basis) in your very next door it is reasonable enough to believe that WE ARE 'THE' LUCKIEST ONES ON OUR OWN AND THE, OTHERWISE, LONE UNIVERSE (pack the string theory for the time being).

What to describe about offline and online media. Leads generation is the best on online media. Offline media do not generate leads. Leads can be tracked to the end recipient! This makes the lead genuine and can be cross checked. Online Marketing Activity is very rarely used for brand building! Brand Building is yet strong offline focused dominance. When I speak of online media, I would include new technology such as SMS on Cell phones; the population may not be plugged in but is definitely keyed into new technology. Your view on online media neglecting segments is an ignorance of the power of new media. We can segment better online than offline because we know exactly what words the consumer is searching for, we also know the profile of the consumer and can detect location as well. All your P's and any other abbreviations are in place! I would like to re-iterate that this is a better lead generation tool than a Brand Building tool. Print is not a competition but a compliment to new technology. It will never go away. Similarly a Marketing mix would be a best strike approach.

There are increasing blog advertising network found in Internet. But only few networks create a buzz between the bloggers and the advertisers. Blog marketing is the term used to describe internet marketing via web blogs. These blogs differ from corporate websites because they feature daily or weekly posts, often around a single topic. Typically, corporations use blogs to create a dialog with customers and explain features of their products and services. Blog marketing has also influenced many organizations use blogs with their user community. This allows them to share and preview product features, functions, and benefits before the products are released. I found one of the best networks which satisfy both the advertisers and bloggers known as Snap Bomb. Blogs are an excellent way to gather feedback and to make sure products meet the needs of users. Bloggers can just write a review about the advertiser’s product and can get paid to their post. Blogs have become the next generation marketing tool to corporate websites which merely post collateral and do not provide any interactive feedback. Blogs are also supplementary to a User Group. User Groups happen annually for example while blogs provide users constant daily and weekly feedback. Thus Snap Bomb Blog advertising has created a new evolution in Internet for advertisers and bloggers.For more information you can just visit http://www.snapbomb.com/bloggers.html?acp=7551 .
Researchers in the US have invented a new interferometer technique that has produced the first 3D images of a living cell without having to alter the cell beforehand. Created by physicist Michael Feld and colleagues at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the technique involves shining a laser beam through a biological sample at different angles to record a 3D image with sub-micrometer resolution (Nature Methods advance online publication).
