Not looking forward to the quantum computer breakthrough that means I won't be able to buy from the internet anymore.

I wonder what the quantum computer equivalent to multiplying two unfeasibly large prime numbers will be?

Security issues?

:)

I doubt they will be able to make that a consumer product anytime soon.

I saw a supercooled quantum computer that factored 15 into 3 and 5. It was the size of a large wardrobe. But if there is something like Moore's Law in the quantum computing world, they'll develop quickly.

Could be I'm too cynical. But from the various published bits I've read, the apparatus is too clumsy to be useful apart from lab proof-of-concept scenarios.

I saw a digital computer emulator of a quantum computer but the limitation there was that normally linear storage requirements go exponential when emulating qubits. It seems unlikely that emulation is a sustainable approach to the problem.

We'll have to wait for true quantum computers improve, I guess.

I'm not a math guy, so I cannot truly appreciate the curve.

But.

Think of how quickly the level of information you could store, if you went from binary to trinary, to base-4 to base-X for each memory cell.

Current tech is base 2, that is each bit can hold either a zero (no charge) or a 1 (a charge)(they are essentially capacitors--and need constant refreshing).

What if you could change that, so that each bit could hold a zero, a one or a 2? Would that double the information density?

The answer is no--it would increase exponentially with each additional memory-state.

So a quantum-bit computer has the potential to have **hundreds** of memory-states at each "bit".

The potential for information storage is ... kinda amazing.

Potentially, you could exceed all the **current** memory capacity in the world, with a **single** quantum memory device.
