Quantum computers in the offing?

... the team has demonstrated that it is possible to take photons from two disparate sources and render these particles partially indistinguishable ... [suggesting] in principle that they can connect various types of hardware devices into a single quantum information network.

This bit of quantum news was recently reported by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on their blog. And, actually you could say it's a breakthrough that might lead to quantum computers and a whole new era of amazing computational power.  Who knows where that might lead?

I can't wait to hangup the silicon laptop for a photon computer!
