That's why I NEVER leave my car unattended without a steering wheel lock. Even if some mutt managed to get an electronic copy of my car key, he wouldn't get very far if he tried to steal the car.

Can't you unlock a steering wheel lock with a bump key?

I can unlock a steering wheel lock with a bolt cutter. The real solution is to just disable the remote unlock function. Leave remote lock working, though. Of course it would be better if the cheapo car makers had left the key locks on the passenger side doors instead of being so cheap. Many times all I want to do is unlock the passenger side door and put things in, I don't want to unlock all doors in some of those areas that I do have to visit on occasion. Of course, disabling the remote unlock function is probably not possible with the way the system is designed now.

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.
