[Engadget] IBM: We're on the cusp of the Quantum Computing revolution (video)

Technology's holy grail is the development of a "perfect" Quantum Computer. Traditional computers recognize information as bits: binary information representing "On" or "Off" states. A quantum computer uses qubits: operating in superposition, a qubit exists in all states simultaneously -- not just "On" or "Off," but every possible state in-between. It would theoretically be able to instantly access every piece of information at the same time, meaning that a 250 qubit computer would contain more data than there are particles in the universe. IBM thinks it's closer than ever to realizing this dream and if you want to know more, we have the full details after the break.

Sounds like technological singularity will happen in my lifetime - unless we manage to nuke ourselves back into stone age very soon.

Did the same person say this as the one who said the world would never need more than a couple of computers?
