IBM's Plans For the Cell Processor 124

angry tapir writes "Development around the original Cell processor hasn't stalled, and IBM will continue to develop chips and supply hardware for future gaming consoles, a company executive said. IBM is working with gaming machine vendors including Nintendo and Sony, said Jai Menon, CTO of IBM's Systems and Technology Group, during an interview Thursday. 'We want to stay in the business, we intend to stay in the business,' he said. IBM confirmed in a statement that it continues to manufacture the Cell processor for use by Sony in its PlayStation 3. IBM also will continue to invest in Cell as part of its hybrid and multicore chip strategy, Menon said."

Even better, were this held on private land. If private land I need the permission from the land owner. If he says no bad for me because the USC does not factor in private actions. So I try public lands, but ah, that is owned by the government thus I still need to ask permission to hold a protest.

You seem to be forgetting one thing in your analysis: In the U.S., the government is supposed to be owned by the people, the public (I'm not saying it is, mind you), so public lands are supposed to be owned by the people, to be used by the people.

Having to to ask permission to exercise your right of peaceful assembly on public lands, of which you are part owner, seems to me to be a violation of the Constitution, as it is intended.
