Smart meters are for benefit of utilities not a consumer...it is done and over so let's move on...bring on gas sensors and other smell devices! we take pictures of everything, watch movies, games etc and listen to music/sports/news all the time...why not work on smell? collect smells, email them to your friends, share on Facebook, plot maps of smells in various cities, design new smell apps..so many biz opps!

The smart meters are for their benefit, not yours. Some may see things like potential monetary benefit to he customer, but those are currently coming at obvious cost ... like shutting off my electricity at peak times, or cycling down the power output, etc. Maybe there can be a push into Big Data by producing and allowing end user analysis and utilization, but the market has dictated it's not yet viable ...

Seems to me that all three of these are devices to prevent someone from doing something that you find objectionable. I don't see how you would get them to want it. I would like to see something come out of the smart electric meter. They came and put one of these on my house, but as far as I can see, it only makes it easier for them to read it (every 15 mins). If it helped me save money, then I could see it being useful.

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.
