Juno's super(computer) adventure, sans privacy

Author: JT Smith

TheStandard reports: "Tired of your computer looking for
aliens when you're not using it? Now
you can tell that big hunk of plastic on
your desk to do work for actual,
for-profit companies when you're busy
elsewhere, and you won't get a dime!
That about sums up the approach
Juno Online Services (JWEB) is using
in a virtual supercomputer plan
designed to monetize, as
InternetNews' Thor Olavsrud put it, its
free subscribers."
