Agreed! I tend not to get too excited about any purported breakthroughs (after all, how long have we been hearing about them), however I do hold high hope for anything from a company with a good track record of delivering on their research - that includes IBM, MIT, the various national labs, etc. Here's hoping...
Yes...and for the record, as an IBMer I'm not speaking for IBM, and I'm not in any way involved with this project...but IBM is usually pretty tight lipped about things until things get "real". So I'm pretty optimistic as well.
