Atomic size computers

AFP via Yahoo News reports,
Scientists at an IBM research center in Silicon Valley have created a magnetism-manipulating tool suited to building molecular computers, the company revealed.

Now for the grain of salt. Don't go WOW. The news is fascinating by itself - a real technological breakthrough but extrapolating the ramifications to atomic size computers is a bit too much. It could have been worse if you remember there are objects smaller than an atom!! I am glad they made a conscious decision not to go beyond.

I plan to post a couple of articles on the promises and viability of quantum computers asap.
