Here’s what quantum supremacy does—and doesn’t—mean for computing

Google’s achievement is significant, but quantum computers haven’t suddenly turned into computing colossi that will leave conventional machines trailing in the dust. Nor will they be laying waste to conventional cryptography in the near future—though in the longer term, they could pose a threat we need to start preparing for now.

Here’s a guide to what Google appears to have achieved—and an antidote to the hype surrounding quantum supremacy.

all this quantum shit is utter BS, so that we stop using strong encryption (cuz it will be obsolete or so the shit goes).
all it means is that now you have 0, 1, 2 and 3 as possible results on a logic true/false test. and you have 3 nested 'if' statements, instead of one.
