    Quantum Computing - Will it make it to the desktop?

    A classical computer has a memory made up of bits, where each bit is represented by either a one or a zero. A quantum computer maintains a sequence of qubits. A single qubit can represent a one, a zero, or any quantum superposition of those two qubit states;[11]:1316 a pair of qubits can be in any quantum superposition of 4 states,[11]:16 and three qubits in any superposition of 8 states. In general, a quantum computer with {\displaystyle n} qubits can be in an arbitrary superposition of up to {\displaystyle 2^{n}} different states simultaneously


    ..And, what would we do differently?

    But the dimensioning would be so much tighter.

    I always thought it was some kind of little appetizers, a cereal, or maybe even an STD.

    Good evening sir, care for a plate of cubits to go with your champagne?
    Hey mom, I need some more milk for my bowl of cubits.
    I'm sorry young lady, the vaginal swab we did shows you have an advanced case of cubits.

    That's no vaginal swab; that's your tongue!
