    ....because soon this current technology will be completely antiquated.
    In fact, never buy anything again, because in 10 or 20 years it will look old.

    However, the first thing I thought when I read this article was "I wonder what Apple would do with this when they get it?" For practical, personal uses, quantum computing seems so bizarrely over-powerful at this time. Massive data organizing, searching, and CGI creation would be well aided by this stuff.

    Why not buy something and use it for the next 5 years and then when its time to upgrade your "antiquated" equipment you'll be that much better off :rolleyes:

    Edit:
    by the way the linked document requires a subscription. OP, you'd be better served by quoting the article instead of linking to it
