It’s incredible that we’re slowly harnessing actual magic

> Quantum computers could one day outperform traditional machines ffs, no they won’t. Quantum computers are useful for a very specific subset of problems. Not for general purpose computing like your desktop or mobile phone. If they ever become commercially viable and small enough, you will most likely end up getting a dedicated ‘quantum chip’ as part of your regular mother board. Think of it like your GPU or decidated sound card. It’ll be good at doing one specific thing very well.

I can’t wait until the day we have quantum processors within our cell phones
