More Update on That "Quantum Computer"

After the dust has settled a little bit, we are starting to find out a bit more about D-Wave's "quantum computer". A new report on PhysicsWeb has delved into the matter even more closely, and presented a better picture of what could possibly be the mechanism involved in this so-called quantum computer. It certainly is a step in the right direction. However, I don't think this is that big of a step because there appears to be a fundamental scaling issue that has yet to be solved. This, and the need to maintain coherence of the system, are the two of the major issues in quantum computing. I don't see that they have yet solved this.
