But the article isn't talking about storing values. provides a computing matrix of 65536 mostly independent elements

Once the calculation is finished there is only one value, between 0 and 255 but before a measurement is made the qubit is esentially a supposition of every possible value.

That's my understanding of it anyway. I'm most probably wrong, quantum mechanics was never a strong point of mine.
