Submission + - d-wave announces usable 16 qubit quantum computer

euice writes: A company called D-Wave Sys claims to have developped the first commercially usable 16 qubit quantum computer.

FTA: Please join us in February as we demonstrate a technological first: an end-to-end quantum computing system powered by a 16-qubit quantum processor, running two commercial applications — live.

Is there any breakthrough I missed? What would you expect them to show up with?

The first time, it's a KLUDGE! The second, a trick. Later, it's a well-established technique! -- Mike Broido, Intermetrics
