In today's issue of the journal "Nature" it's reported that a Quantum Computer
has factored the number 15. The answer (3 and 5) will surprise few but this
is a real Quantum Computer, I've been wondering for a long time when it would
happen, it's a milestone. It proves there has been a lot of advances on the
hardware side of things over the last few years, it also proves that Peter Shor's
quantum factoring algorithm works in reality not just on paper.
