"Cell" chip

Developed by IBM, Sony, and Toshiba, the "Cell (microprocessor) is understood to have at least four cores and be significantly faster than Intel and AMD chips." (via FT.com)

True multi-threaded programming is going to become more and more expected in application development as processing speed increases by adding cores, not GHz. Who's going to make this kind of development really easy to do?
