I would welcome the freedom to use my own cellphone as I wish rather than being locked into any particular provider. I am amazed at the really dumb laws that get passed with the apparent goal of protecting some company rather than the consumer! Way to go!

It's about time the cell phone industry is opened up, much like the wired telephone industry ws way back in the 1980s. We should be able to buy any cell phone we want to use with any provider we want. I never understood why in the US, consumers are so often herded into these walled gardens, in the past 30 years or so, and put up with it.

Sina Khanifar just alerted me that the White House just took action to make the results of federally sponsored science more open. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/response/increasing-public-access-results-scientific-research

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.
