IBM and Sony to release 'Cell' CPU workstations this winter
I wonder if Apple will catch this distributed computing train. Could there be an iGrid for normal people to go along with Xgrid for propeller heads?
Imagine, your FCP project is rendering too slow so you simply plug in your iPod and iCell to increase the CPU power of your system. Cool.

But before everyone starts getting too excited by all this, here's one other point to note: IBM has been here before. The Sony-IBM-Toshiba alliance is uncannily reminiscent of the Apple-IBM-Motorola alliance. One was formed to create an Intel-busting next-generation computing platform and the other launched the PowerPC.
