But How Many Qubits Does It Have?

Journalists are usually generalists, and it's often easy for a domain expert to spot serious errors or misrepresentations in news stories. (And that's a little depressing, because if they report your field so badly, how can you believe anything else they write?)

I had a very good chuckle over this:

The machine currently runs at 16 qubits, the basic unit of quantum computing. That's less power than most standard computers and what the company calls a proof of concept.

I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a statement.

Martin said the company plans to have it running at about 1,000 qubits by the time the product goes on sale next year.

OMG 1,000 qubits mine only has 64 bits so it's gonna be like three times faster!!!one
