	BUT, that's not the whole story. As microelectronics became even more common, people started using retardphones, and now they are connected to a worldwide tracking/spying network AND the worldwide fucktard users store their data on a bunch of 'mainframes' onwed by their worst enemies : multinational govcorp.

	you mean, the nsa has a working computer? I

> In fact, for a few years I suspect that most quantum-computers will be accessed (if they are accessed at all) over the Internet.    Like the big mainframes of the 1960's, few companies will have enough money to buy and maintain them onsite.  

	"for a few years"? There's no working QC computer, not even the ones costing 10s of millions work. And yet you think in a "few years" there will be personal 'quantum' computers?
