Sure, but we don't overclock by increasing the speed at which electricity flows through the circuitry in our processors. We overclock by adjusting the frequency at which signals are sent and processed. Similarly, we don't need to adjust the speed of light, only the frequency it's sent at.

Just don't increase it too much or we'll be treated to a nice healthy dose of gamma rays and turn into hulks

QC will be highly specialized when first introduced. Think about IBM in the 50's. We won't get our overclocking hands on one for many decades, if not centuries. The benefits/applications of QC are almost all in cryptology or physics computing right now. Wiki has this on its QC page.



Google, the Pentagon, and Walmart will have one before this century is out. I hope I'm around to see if my prediction is correct!
That just seems like it wouldn't be a good idea to release it to the mainstream audience. It could cause a lot of security issues, unless even more robust encryption is developed.
