If I understand right, then Amazon will be offering a cloud access to it's CUDA for a paid period of time. Is it just me, or would I be able to run some folding@home on it?

sure you can run folding@home but because it would be using 100% of the CPU 100% of the time, it would get expensive quickly. Probably to the point that it would be cheaper to have your own kit.
Amazon cloud is big because you only pay for what you use, so if your CPU is idle, you dont pay a thing.
Also to note, amazon also charge extra for storage, I/O's and network bandwidth.
