A quite fine example of why one should not trust CNN with scientific
news, the hyperbole of the article was quite amusing (although the
subject is indeed amazing, I can hardly wait until I get my hands on
Nature) Now every crackpot will think the teleportation booth is
around the corner.

This result is yet another step in the direction of turning matter
into information processing.
