No doubt, timing is very important to the success of a product, in particular, a new product. Apple launched iPhone 3 in a relatively moderate economy. Although it was priced extremely high compared to the other mobile phones in the market, it is a great success. Since then, Apple stock has been going against the flow of economy. The story leaves a lot of people puzzling. I am sure Microsoft executives are among the group. Ultrabook is priced pretty high compared to PC laptop. Yet, most of them are not more expensive than a Macbook Air. So, what would be the right price. Pricing model is always tricky. Macbook, to most people, is still expensive. Yet, there is no doubt a market. How is the market responding Surface? I think to the end of the day the fate of Surface is determined by whether it will fulfill the wishes of consumers.

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.
