    Could somebody outline the main points in quantum computing and it's differences from digital? I see all these articles about quantum chips, an extra 'maybe' in addition to 'yes' and 'no', and then they start talking about one chip doing several processes simultaneously in different universes. And even then, I still only see them manipulating the quantum states of atom's electrons, which seems to defeat the purpose, since you have to know what to manipulate it to in the first place.

    Can somebody help me break this down?

    Try looking at Wikipedia. They have a pretty lengthy article that seems to answer most of your questions.
