Quantum cryptography is expensive and pointless

"Quantum Crypto was invented by physicists who understand physics well but have no understanding of security. It does what it claims to do, but what it claims to do is of no use to anyone. Quantum Crypto does nothing for at all for the things people actually need solved, and for what it does do, it costs vastly too much. It is a lead balloon, a jet powered toast buttering machine, an electronically controlled salad fork." —Perry Metzger
