The formal paper was published in the December 1 issue of Nature. A qubyte with eight ions provides a computing matrix of 65536 mostly independent elements. No word in the article about whether they were able to actually use the qubyte for computing."
Economists state their GNP growth projections to the nearest tenth of a
percentage point to prove they have a sense of humor.
