Google Compute

Google Compute – You've likely heard of the programs that use your computer's idle time to do something good for the world.  Now users with the Google toolbar can turn on a function that will enable them to be participants in the Google Compute project.

The first beneficiary of this effort is Folding@home, a non-profit research project at Stanford University that is trying to understand the structure of proteins so they can develop better treatments for a number of illnesses. In the future Google Compute may allow you to donate your computing time to other worthwhile endeavors, including projects to improve Google and its services.

Hmm.  "improve google and its services"  I wonder what that means.
