I have long suspected that so called quantum computing might not be nearly as spooky as its hype likes to hint.

These two papers seem to show pretty clearly that the whole mysterious "Bell Inequality" thing is really just a straightforward topological correlation, totally classical, local, and real:

http://arxiv.org/abs/0904.4259

http://arxiv.org/abs/1101.1958

Can quantum computing really give the speedups its hype claims if really all the so called entanglement stuff is really just a matter of the topology of rotations in space?

I'm no physicist but this does interest me. I'd take it to Reddit's AskScience as there appear to be a lot of practising physicists there, both experimental and theoretical.

However much I want these to be true, I wouldn't read too much into them.  They are preprints, and they have been up for years.
