This doesn't belong in consoles, clearly.
Not sure why Cell is consistently allowed to slide in that area.
It might be argued that Cell's evolution, its roadmap, the characteristics of new Cell products on different manufacturing processes etc. directly pertains to future gaming technologies and systems (i.e. PS4, at least). It's a technology whose home is in the games industry.
On a less academic level, it seems somehow less right to put this kind of stuff in a general hardware sub-forum. The people most closely watching Cell are likely the people frequenting this board.
