Yes, the article was disappointingly fluffy and vacuous. The Telegraph used to be regarded as one of the UK's `heavy' newspapers, before Conrad Black bought it.

As we're still struggling to develop ways of exploiting multiple cores properly*, developing algorithms for quantum machines is still some way off.

* --- well, I'll rephrase that. `as we're still addicted to pathetic 3GL high-level assembly languages rather than genuine programming languages that allow clear expression of algorithms'
