Issued on: Modified:
Google says its team of researchers has successfully used a quantum computer to crack, within minutes, a complex problem that would have taken other supercomputers thousands of years to solve. There's a long way to go before the new technology can be applied to everyday life, but the news has already spooked cryptocurrency investors who see it as a threat to the blockchain technology's encryption algorithms. Plus, Carlos Ghosn's lawyers say they want all charges against him dropped, accusing prosecutors of colluding with Nissan executives and making up crimes in order to oust him.
