Some of my current musings:

"I think it is no coincidence that key people in the company [Sony]  
have hinted at the PlayStation 3 as more of a computer than a gaming  
system. It has a secret weapon if only it is willing to unearth it:  
the Cell processor. The PlayStation 3 is interesting from a  
standpoint of more than just a game playing machine; if it lives up  
to its alleged level of power, it is also an extremely attractive  
platform for computing, save for the limited RAM and hard disk space.  
While Sony is limited in improvements to the system (and probably  
does not even need to make improvements) for gaming purposes, it  
could very easily create a supped up version of the PlayStation 3  
platform with the same amount of ram and hard disk space as a modern  
mid or high end computer – say 1 to 2 gigabytes of ram and 250-500  
gigs of hard disk space."
