Hardware, Embedded Systems With all the talk about Moore's Law, and doomsday predictions of the industry hitting the ceiling of what's possible with regular transistors, you'd almost forget that a lot of people are already thinking about the next revolution in computing: quantum computers. Researchers at Yale have succeeded in producing the first working solid-state quantum processor. Highly intriguing, but way over my head.

This could be bad for security. With the added speed, they could crack systems in minutes that would normally have taken hundreds or thousands on years (in theory)
