There's been some fuss the last week or so about a result in Quantum
Mechanics.  The paper http://arxiv.org/abs/1111.3328 is fairly simple, but I
didn't understand what it was really trying to show (for example - how is this
different from Bell's inequality?).

Thankfully someone involved in the field has written a very clear article
explaining what it means and why it is important (or not) -
