Sounds like the answer is "sorta". It definitely performs quantum computations, but not reliably and not large ones.

Interesting. In think the answer is, not unsurprisingly, simply that they are getting closer.

I liked this quote:

The thing driving the hype is the realisation that quantum computing is actually real,” says Isaac Chuang, a lean, soft-spoken MIT professor. “It is no longer a physicist’s dream – it is an engineer’s nightmare.
Which I think probably sums up the current state of affaires rather nicely.
