Cell is a microprocessor architecture jointly developed by a Sony, Toshiba, and IBM alliance known as STI.

Cell is a shorthand for Cell Broadband Engine Architecture, commonly abbreviated CBEA in full or Cell BE in part. Cell combines a general-purpose POWER-architecture core of modest performance with streamlined coprocessing elements which greatly accelerate multimedia and vector processing applications, as well as many other forms of dedicated computation.

The major commercial application of Cell is in Sony's upcoming PlayStation 3 game console which is slated to launch in November 2006. It will also become available in a blade configuration from Mercury Computer Systems. Toshiba has announced plans to incorporate Cell in high definition television sets. Exotic features such as the XDR memory subsystem and coherent EIB interconnect appear to position Cell for future applications in the supercomputing space to exploit the Cell processor's prowess in floating point kernels.

Created by some dumbass college guy in an Iowa dorm. The sexual act of having a sexual partner (usually a woman) eating corn. After eating the corn the other partner then eats the undigested corn out of the other partner's ass hole during intercourse.
"Dude, did you see the way Jessica was eating the corn in the cafeteria earlier? I'd definitely give her the Nebraska Food Processor."

"Dude, you're disgusting."
