One step closer to a functioning quantum computer:

The potential of 10 billion entangled qubits--if successfully processed--would be staggering.
The quantum potential of a qubit is 2n states.
Just an idea to wrap your head around, from Wikipedia: , a 300-qubit quantum computer has a state described by 2e300 (approximately 1090) complex numbers, more than the number of atoms in the observable universe.

I should add that they say "bits" of entanglement, not qubits. So that may be the explanation.

Hell no!

Big changes by the end of the decade.
