Submission + - PS3 Folding like crazy

hlimethe3rd writes: We've seen numerous articles about the Playstation 3 being a total flop as a gaming machine. But now, the machine is tearing through Folding@Home.

So don't buy one as a gaming console, buy one to save your grandmother.

Take an astronaut to launch.
