Good News for PS3

I'm tough, but fair. This is pretty cool.

This is not cool, this is uncool, this is so far from cool that it is the very opposite of what is cool. Distributed computing is awful, awful, awful. Every piece of electronics in the world has a finite lifespan. Varying factors reduce that lifespan, but most importantly: USE hastens the death of any piece of electronics. Computers or game consoles are no different, after time they wear down. A processor is no different. While it may not have moving parts that wear with age, it gives off heat the can cause other internal parts to wear. So what distributed computing does is use your machine for someone else's work, which over time will hasten the demise of your game console or PC. They don't bother to tell you that when they install their distributed computering app on your console or PC. They also don't pay you for the priviledge of using your machine. So basically, it's like buying a PS3 and letting everyone share it when you're not using it. It's running 24-7. And oh yeah, it costs $600.
