'Data-in, data-out' signals quantum breakthrough
    Originally posted by NewScientist.com
    The technique could lead to the development of long-distance optical-quantum communications channels. These promise flawless privacy, because any attempt at eavesdropping will disturb the quantum nature of the information sent.

    Currently, photons carrying quantum information can only travel tens of kilometres through fibre optics cables before deteriorating. But a "quantum repeater" capable of storing a photon's quantum information before retransmitting it, could be used to transmit quantum data over much greater distances.

If anybody can tell me, I would like to know why they believe that they can have "quantum repeaters" without it being used to sniff these quantum packets undetected? (flawless privacy = bullshit)

Depends on your definition of "get rid of." If the computer is going to be repurposed with the existing hard drive, you're not totally safe unless you run some sort of wiping software on it.
