PS3 Cures Boredom, Cancer

This was first brought to my attention when some Montreal paper's weekend edition ran an inside teaser head, "Could the PS3 Cure Cancer?" Ha ha, I thought, hyperbole. But no, it's kinda true.

[H]ell, if your machine is going to burn energy when not in use, best to put that power suck toward a good cause, right? Stanford and Sony have announced that PlayStation 3s will be able to participate in Cure@PS3, making gamers' consoles massively parallelized computing nodes for the Folding@Home project.
