As demonstrated by D-Wave Systems:

Because of its inherent properties, D-Wave's computer is optimised for running complex and often consuming simulations — for example, what happens when different variables are changed in an ornate financial model, or how different proteins interact with various synthetic, simulated pharmaceuticals. The system also could be used for non-scientific research such as searching patent databases for matches and overlap of intellectual property.

Goldman will want to get its hands on that computer.

However, some scientists are skeptical:

Still waiting for that elusive quantum computer, but we've gotten another step closer. Expect to have a workable system in 10 to 20 years.

IBM throws weight behind quantum computing. Says commercialization is about 15 years away.

One more step towards a quantum computer.

http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2012/02/sa-transistor/

Quote:
The new research from Purdue and New South Wales does not demonstrate a quantum bit. But in placing a single-atom transistor on a silicon crystal — and carefully isolating it from the surrounding substrate — it provides a clearer path to a working quantum computer.

Article contends that D-Wave is actually much further along than what the 84-qubit system suggests.

Another step towards a quantum computer:

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn21235-entangled-diamonds-blur-quantumclassical-divide.html

Quote:
The real value of the experiment may be in probing the boundary between quantum mechanics and classical physics. "We think that it is the first time that a room-temperature, solid-state system has been demonstrably put in this entangled quantum state," Walmsley says. "This is an interesting avenue for thinking about how quantum mechanics can emerge into the classical world."

Another breakthrough in quantum computing design:

Quote:
Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara, have become the first to combine a quantum processor with memory that can be used to store instructions and data. This achievement in quantum computing replicates a similar milestone in conventional computer design from the 1940s.
