The Air Force strikes back

There are consequences to posting those Wikileaks documents. The Air Force has blocked access on its network to more than two dozen media outlets who have posted them. The Pentagon has warned personnel not to go to the Wikileaks site, but this takes it a step further. Meaning, US Air Force personnel will not be able to get to those sites from their military networks. Among those blocked are the Guardian and the New York Times.

Video Game Consoles Make Up Green Supercomputer

High-resolution computer systems capable of networking around the world are being used by researchers at the Air Force Research Lab to build a new supercomputer. It holds the distinction of being one of the cheapest - and one of the greenest - supercomputers in the world because the systems being used are Sony PlayStation 3 game consoles - over 17-hundred of them. It's called the Condor Cluster project and it's being built entirely from off-the-shelf commercial components. Its creators say it could change the supercomputing landscape. The system is capable of making 500 trillion calculations per second -- and represents new ways for supercomputers to increase computational resources while using less energy. The Condor is currently considered the seventh-greenest computer in the world. It cost only 2 million dollars to build, whereas the cheapest comparable supercomputers would cost $50 million or more.
