Neat stuff, thanks for the article. I am fascinated by physics and quantum mechanics, and it's interesting and fun to ponder and analyze computational limits due to quantum effects.

On a slightly related topic, with regards to computing speed, Bjarne Stroustrup said it best when he exclaimed that the "next generation of Intel chips can do an infinite loop in five minutes!" :-D
