Good stuff; I was reading earlier today that they're attempting to use quantum computers to beat hackers. It's a shame that the Independent's science correspondent wasn't a little more knowledgeable about quantum computing though, it's not an atom that carries the quantum bit (qubit), it's a more elementary particle, e.g. an electron or a photon.

I'm following this with interest Martin and I'd suggest thats a long, long way off. No-one except D-Wave themselves believes a practical quantum computer even exists. For anyone interested, Scott Aaronson's blogs are a good place to start.

Cheers
