On the AT&T network I get about 5% of my calls to connect but then I only hear silence while the other end hears me. In this case I believe it's a network issue and not a phone issue because it has been doing these for four generations of cell phones so far.

Well Frank, it may be that I periodically drop my (non smart) phone, the back pops off and the battery falls out. Thus, an accidental reset!

Wow, I'm surprised you've never had to do a hard reset on your phone before. The need to do that is infrequent, but most smartphone owners I know have had to do it at least once, with one exception -- iPhone owners, who can't easily remove the battery anyway. But even there, Apple provides a different way to do a hard reset.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
