    I wait to be educated. As of now I know of no version of a quantum Turing machine other than the abstract mathematical description of one.

  1.  
    The only possible unbreakable code is one that cannot be decoded.

    Those hints sure are powerful. Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    That's an important device, though 65% of getting it right is a bit low for electronics. Interesting.

    "Is able to manipulate the frequency of these photons on demand" .

    What the hell can that mean even in theory? I didn't get.

    I think it is supposed to mean that there is some tunability to the bandgap.

    Race to Quantum Computing Supremacy should see definitive results in 2018.

    What they really mean is
    Race to Quantum Computing Supremacy should see definitive results in 2 years.
    They've been saying that for a while.

    It's really difficult for me to put any credence in what NBF says.

    Is this a personal failing because NBF really is prescient?
  6.  
    As far as I can tell, your personal failings are nonexistent compared to the norm (please send money). But nothing they've said has ever come to pass. I therefore conclude that the Big Future they describe as being Next must occupy some parallel reality to which only NBF is privy. Or, in less flowery and decidedly pithier fashion per MY: NBF=POS

    This is where my botched link should have gone.

    Will quantum computing kill Bitcoin? I don't think a code tweak will save it, but useful quantum computers still seem a ways off, if they are really possible at all.
