quantum computers




Lately I've been wondering about why I couldn't sleep earlier than 2am. Then I just realized that I was eating chocolates for midnight snacks. Ah well, I've already finished ~250 grams worth of raisinets. They're all gone now.

A few years back scientists made the first quantum computer. Quantum computing, if i'm not mistaken, will make computing ridiculously fast, to the point that encryption systems in the military and banks can be cracked in a matter of minutes.

Anyway, today I stumbled upon this article: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/04/120404161943.htm and realized that there's been a lot of progress in quantum computing (something that is science fiction before) but the news is not so public. I mean, it's not popular or something. It doesn't seem to make it on the sites I usually read despite the huge impact it will have once it's completed.
