D-Wave Announces Commercially Available Quantum Computer 133

New submitter peetm writes "Computing company D-Wave has announced they're selling a quantum computing system commercially, which they're calling the D-Wave One. The D-Wave system comes equipped with a 128-qubit processor designed to perform discrete optimization operations. A qubit is the basic unit of quantum information – analogous to a bit in conventional computing. For a broader understanding of how qubits work, check out Ars Technica's excellent guide."

    I did. It has nothing to do with this. While pronunciation of "should've" and "should of" are phonetically similar, there simply is no such thing as "should of"(which should, of course, be clear by now).

    You are attempting to cover up for this erratum by distorting information. Please stop attempting to cite archaic linguistics that you don't understand.
