Update will also make changes to the trophies section

Sony announced that it would tomorrow launch a new system software update (Version 4.30) for the PlayStation 3 that will include many changes to the Trophies section on the PS3.

One of the changes that gamers who own a PS3, and a PlayStation Vita portable console appreciate is that you now get the ability to view trophies earned playing Vita games on the PS3. Sony has also announced that the new system update will end all services available through the “Life with PlayStation” application.

Existing users who have the “Life with PlayStation” application will see their services ended in November. Along with terminating the “Life with PlayStation” application also comes an end to Sony's participation in Stanford University's Folding@home initiative. Folding@home was a project that allowed participants to donate unused processing time on the PS3 to the University project studying protein folding, misfolding, and certain other diseases such as cancer.

Folding@home came to the PS3 in 2007 and more than 15 million users choice participated in the program to date. There were just a million PS3 users Folding@home back in February of 2008.
 
Sony says the PS3 users donated more than 100 million computational hours to the project and greatly contributed to disease research.

Vijay Pande, lead researcher at Stanford University for Folding@home said, "The PS3 system was a game changer for Folding@home, as it opened the door for new methods and new processors, eventually also leading to the use of GPUs.”

In any event, Folding@Home seems dead as a project, since their homepage just returns "page not found"

Loads fine for me.
