The US Air Force is buying up 2200 Playstation 3's for “architectural studies”, utilizing Sony's cell processor with it's capabilities to process 150 gigaflops. These 2200 will be added to the existing 336 PS3 supercomputer they already have set up.

I got my sister pregnant once. Yeah, that was awkward, but mostly because she's 6 years younger than me.

Smart move, taking advantage of the fact that Sony sell the consoles at a loss expecting to recoup the cost in games they can get much more power for less money.

Clearly Sony, while aware that they make a loss on each console, are trying to make it up in volume

Sony are probably pretty pissed about this as they lose a lot of money on it, although I suppose it's great advertising for them, so they're probably cool with it.
