DailyDirt: Quantum Computers Are Both Here And Not Here...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Quantum computers are starting to become a commercial reality as multiple companies start to take advantage of the strange laws of quantum physics to solve complex mathematical problems.

Here are just a few links on these new computers that aren't quite ready to replace desktop PCs. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.
