And Now For Something Completely Different: Quantum Computers

If we would only elect Donald Trump, we'd have a yuge quantum computer but quick, that I can tell you.

Quantum computers in our near future?

Obviously The Donald won't speed up research on quantum computers, but then Hillary Clinton -- for all I've praised her recently -- might not have a clue how a BlackBerry actually works. But I'd trust her to know science's place in our national priorities. Ted Cruz, for all I know, would think that a quantum computer was an affront to God Almighty.

I digress. Read this startling article, with a link to a podcast that goes more in depth, on scalable quantum computers that just might bust through our current limits to computing. Wonderful.
