You should pay some respect to something officially recognized in Guiness World Records as the best selling desktop computer of all time.

Yes, it was a very popular doorstop! :D

Is there any evidence of a quantum computer doing anything better than a traditional computer, or is it just all theoretical?

According to my world leading quantum computing research friend, head of a quantum computing lab, nope, they aren't capable of anything practical yet.

Yep.
The reason it gets so much attention lately (and thus funding) is its promise to (eventually) be able to crack our state-of-the-art encryption schemes. Of course it's still a long way from that, but that's pretty much the only application I've heard of and which (IMHO) explains why governments are starting to invest "massively" in it. As always, it's not because of any potential positive application, but just because it's a potential, very powerful weapon.

Multiple of the founders are Australian and it sounds like they are opening a new fairly large site in Brisbane, but it's still odd to see them called an Australian company...
