Apparently, scientists have now figured out ways to increase computing speeds in computers exponentially by using different combinations of the traditional 1s and 0s of a normal computer, including using both at the same time. O_o You can have one of your own for around $10,000,000, and even then, you'd still have to know how to use it. :D

Pretty cool stuff.

We're on our way to Deep Thought! >:)

Hell yes!

And even then, it'll take millions of years to get an answer. Imagine inventing the world's first artificially intelligent computer, and it says the answer to life is "42" just to fuck with us.

Oh Spyro, you always knew your way around the pool table.

The actual amount of information needed to describe quantum (that is, non-deterministic) state is greater than the amount of information required to describe classical (probabilistic) state by a factor of two.
So, not necessarily exponentially faster, most of the results are still unclear and many media outlets will stretch things to the absolute extreme in order to make a buck.
