Submission + - Spintronics Breakthrough. Quantum Compters Next? (ieee.org)

ee2go writes: An IEEE announcement states "A recent advance in the field of spintronics by researchers in Australia, the United States, and England may have edged scientists closer to a practical quantum computer. They managed to transfer data from the quantum spin of electrons onto phosphorus nuclei and store it there for nearly 2 minutes. With increased sensitivity, say observers, the technique may result in a device that serves as the readout of a quantum computer that will offer blazing speed, near-limitless memory, and virtually impenetrable defense against hacking". It will also include an RSA cracking utility for free.
