Do you want to help cure cancer or alzheimer's disease but don't want to actually do anything? Well thanks to Samsung, now you can.

Samsung's Power Sleep app allows you to donate nothing but your phones processing power. Turn on the app, go to sleep, wake up and cancer is cured. Well maybe it won't be that quick. But by allowing your phone to become part of a worldwide super computer, you'll definitely be helping to speed up important research at the University of Vienna.

Doing good has never been easier.

This has left us a little stunned to be honest. Power Sleep goes way beyond "wish we thought of that" territory and into "Samsung, shut up and take our money/love".
