Maybe saying a Laptop is a dinosaur is going too far, but mobility and immediacy will trump quality of experience more often than not. Further, for data to settle arguments like MLB facts, a mobile device with a 4inch screen is the weapon of choice. I use my laptop less because I have a mobile device and my desktop is nothing more than data storage and backup.

"Laptop dinosaurs?" To compare the web browsing experience of a 4 inch screen to a 20 inch screen is silly. This is particularly for looking at baseball statistics, etc. Mobile makers as well as websites would like to have an app for every device/website combo. Or pay a small fee. No thank you, not if I can help it. With all the IP flack going around between microsoft, motorola, and apple, it's nice to have the Android keeping everyone "honest." It's funny how I do have a tendency to do quick checks from my phone, since it's always with me... But laptops won't go away any time soon, as was implied above.

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.
