 Cell (biology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The cytoplasm of a eukaryotic cell is surrounded by a plasma membrane.
The cell is the structural and functional unit of all living organisms, and is sometimes called the "building block of life." Some organisms, such as bacteria, are unicellular, consisting of a single cell.
This membrane serves to separate and protect a cell from its surrounding environment and is made mostly from a double layer of lipids (fat-like molecules) and proteins.

 MSN Encarta - Cell (biology)
The extraordinary biochemical diversity of prokaryotic cells is manifested in the wide-ranging lifestyles of the archaebacteria and the bacteria, whose habitats include polar ice, deserts, and hydrothermal vents—deep regions of the ocean under great pressure where hot water geysers erupt from cracks in the ocean floor.
Prokaryotic cells are among the tiniest of all cells, ranging in size from 0.0001 to 0.003 mm (0.000004 to 0.0001 in) in diameter.
The smallest cell, a type of bacterium known as a mycoplasma, measures 0.0001 mm (0.000004 in) in diameter; 10,000 mycoplasmas in a row are only as wide as the diameter of a human hair.

 Cell-Biology.com: Cellular Biology
Cells are the structural units of all living things (with the possible exceptions of viruses and prions).
These cells, found only among bacteria, are small (1-5 microns), have a cell wall outside the cell membrane and lack membrane bound organelles.
Cells arise in the body from progenitor or stem cells and become specialized for one or more distinct functions such as contraction, nerve conduction, secretion, absorption, or protection.

 Cell (microprocessor) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Cell the problem has been reversed: reading the data is no longer the difficult problem due to the complex encodings used in industry; today the problem is efficiently decoding that data into an ever-less-compressed version as quickly as possible.
The Cell architecture is intended to be scalable through the use of vector processing.
Cell was developed to be a general purpose processor and also a multimedia processor.

The Cell processor consists of a general-purpose POWERPC processor core connected to eight special-purpose DSP cores.
In its most basic form IBM's Cell does what computer architects have been doing since the first cache was invented — Cell moves a small bit of memory closer to the execution units, and lets the processor store frequently-used code and data in that local memory.
In this brief overview, I'm first going to talk in some general terms about the Cell approach — what it is, what it's like, what's behind it, etc. — before doing an information dump at the end of the article for more technical readers to chew on and debate.

The entire Cell is produced on a 90nm SOI process with 8 layers of copper interconnect.
This is a perfectly good characterization, but I'd take it even further and call Cell a "network on a chip." As I described yesterday, the Cell's eight SPUs are essentially full-blown vector "computers," insofar as they are fairly simple CPUs with their own local storage.
The basic architecture of the Cell is described by IBM as a "system on a chip" (SoC) design.

 Floatation Mirror Cell Design Software
Cell is a public domain program written originally as part of the design of the 24" equatorially mounted telescope Byron Melland and I built for the Pomona Valley Amateur Astronomers.
An early form of the program in BASIC (for 9 and 18 point cells only) was published in ATM and has been used by a number of commercial telescope manufacturers for their mirror cells.
You are free to use Cell for private or commercial mirror cells, but any commercial use should be accompanied by a credit in the documentation stating that the mirror cell design was computed using Cell by David Chandler and giving a reference to the David Chandler Company home page: http://www.DavidChandler.com.
