    IBM is opening up "The IBM Cell/B.E. Challenge '07: Beyond Gaming", a contest for university students across 25 countries. Might be an interesting opportunity for some.

    There are two top prizes of $10,000, one for the US, one for Europe, and an assortment of runner-up prizes.

    Isn't owning a PS3 going to be a real advantage here?

    IBM definitely has better ideas how to push their product. College relations are always better than gassy public relations.
