Researchers have found a way to use the silicon chips found in the Xbox 360 console to solve scientific problems. According to academics at the University of Warwick, they are the first to utilize the processors as an inexpensive way of conducting "parallel processing", which is where a number of processors are run one after another to allow a system to quickly compute data. Traditionally, researchers would have to book time on a specified "cluster" system or put together a network of PCs....

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
