    Thinking of upgrading your computer? Not so fast! The next generation of super computers may be released within the next five years, according to a Financial Times article. These machines will use light, rather than electricity, for computing.

    If you have the budget of Canada, Australia, or Singapore--or all three budgets combined, like the U.S. Defense Department--you might be able to purchase your very own quantum computer!

     
  2. Most people I know upgrade every 3 years. 5 years is a long ways off.

    Most people I know don't have the budget of Canada. These are jokes.
