The problem is that the scientific american article is not free.

It is a bitch. Most knowledge isn't free but there are several
altruistic projects like wikipedia or the free information society
which provides knowledge for free.

Or look at the March 2008 issue of Scientific American in which an
article debunks some of the wilder claims made for quantum computers.

So fast that you have the answer before you asked the question!

Never claimed that it was free, just that it existed. It is lying on my
nightstand right now. If you really want free you can probably go down
to your local purveyor of periodicals and read the article while walking
around casually pretending to browse.

Uri, no real scientific informatin is ever cost free. Real testbooks
are expensive, and good luck with whatever you find for free on the
Internet.

Ask yourself this question: How does one construct an 'quantum
computer'? What precisely is the technology employed to construct one?

Amen to that. Plus, almost every library has this copy of Scientific
American available for free reading.

Given the decline of Scientific American credibility over the past 15
years, it's not the best place to learn about science, but at least it
is freely available to read at a library.

Precisely! Smile

Evidently your recreational reading is much like mine.

Neither are most things in life.

Have you ever heard the term "public library"?

Quantum computation for large product factoring does not work - no way
to interface input and output through a reasonable collection of
states. How fast is that? Hey... already done!

No other applications.

That figure is "mostly harmless" but it might be a tiny bit
faster than that.
