Sony's PLAYSTATION®3 helping in National Security

RICHLAND, Wash.- Believe it or not, technology on your Playstation is being used to help develop new national security devices.

Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are using the same technology used in the new Playstation 3 to develop new video tools for national security.

The research is being done on this small supercomputer, believe it or not it has about one-quarter the computing power of the lab's 8,000 square foot supercomputer.

If you're going to compete for being the biggest fanboy, or whatever it is you guys are doing, do it in the open zone. Stop dragging down the gamer zone.

They could use the PS3s as bullet proof vests. Might be a heavy vest.

for a second on your word 'Cud' you mean "could" for that second i was thinking this... "Cud is a portion of food that returns from a ruminant's stomach in the mouth to be chewed for the second time. More accurately, it is a bolus of semi-degraded food regurgitated from the reticulorumen of a ruminant. Cud is produced during the physical digestive process of rumination, or "chewing the cud". The idiomatic expression chewing one's cud means meditating or pondering." which cows do.

so for future reference trying adding those extra to letters to be clear.
