I, for one, welcome our new quantum overlords.

Quantum computing demo announcement.

Even I know that a new method for solving NP-complete problems is a big deal. The demo was several days ago, so looks like this fortunately didn't lead to a hard-takeoff AI singularity or anything like that... as far as we know. Keep an eye out for D-Wave employees wearing heads-up displays in the shower and fumbling their usage of the first person singular pronoun.

There's a lot more info on that blog, including photographs of the quantum computer.
