+ - First Commerical Quantum Computer?

oostevo (736441) writes "Extreme Tech is reporting (http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1697,209484 9,00.asp) that on Tuesday, a Vancouver company named D-Wave debuted what could be the first commercially viable quantum computer, named the Orion.

However, the computer only works on 16 qbits, which is one of several reasons it is slower than a cheap home PC.

The article also features quite possibly the worst summary of quantum mechanics ever."
