Thanks for the planetarium app. There is also a free version of it and the compass one. I don't know what the difference is from the paid ones. I have also found a couple of different plumb bob apps in case you have to level something.

Some must haves for me include SkyGrid (4.5 star rating, free), a news app that let's you follow various news outlets of your choosing from Politico to Fox and lots in-between. You can also follow specific topics; I skipped the Russel Brand and Lady Gaga suggestions. One app which gained a spot on my home page is Flipboard (5 star rating, free) which brings together Wired, All Things Digital, Facebook, The Onion and much more in a format that is a delight to use. Lastly, National Geographic World Atlas. Just because.

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.
