quantum computer demonstrated, maybe.

The most interesting bit of the article:

   And how exactly would users know that it was the quantum computer
   rather than a human or ordinary computer answering their queries?
   "There's really no way to convince a skeptic who's accessing the
   machine remotely," Rose admits. For now, D-Wave's device is slower
   than an inexpensive home computer, but Rose says a potentially faster
   1,000-qubit version should be available by the end of next year. 

One wonders if the quote is remotely accurate.
