Please note that cellsupercomputer.com does not appear to be the website of the
actual Cell chip manufacturers, but rather a site for some small company that
intends to make use of the Cell chips when they are actually produced. I
wouldn't judge the prospects of the Cell based on cellsupercomputer.com alone.

The Cell processor itself is being developed by Sony, Toshiba, and IBM - not
exactly fly-by-night companies. Sony apparently plans to introduce the Cell in
their Playstation 3 game console. That doesn't *guarantee* that it will come to
fruition, but does make it much more likely.
