Google’s quantum computer just flunked its first big test

A study in Science found that the quantum device is no faster than conventional computing, calling into question the entire premise of Google's lab and D-Wave's machines.

The speedup is quantum computing's big advantage: with it, a quantum computer could tackle mind-bogglingly complex problems that would take a conventional computer years or even centuries. Without it, you're left with a lot of expensive hardware and no clear advantage.

Alas this is just adding up to great misery.

Google's first big disappointment was upon opening the box supposedly containing the new quantum computer. All they found was a dead cat.

But in an alternate universe, they found the cat was alive.

They just need a couple of years to figure out how to use quantum teleportation to sync CPU cores.

There is not a single fact here. That is the problem with non-technical people reporting on technical subjects.
