NO RATINGS
David: It would be intersting for you to compare the two devices. I've bought stuff cheap in China, only later to realize I pretty much got what I paid for, but I realize there are always exceptions. Would love to see a teardown!

I love the picture of the Chromecast-like gadget bought a year ago in a China electronics market!

These are wonderful questions, David, and I'd love to hear thoughtful responses to them.

I'd add one more--when will China get that its missing ingredient is some great software?

Chromecast is not the first innovation I have seen from China. I am sure it will not be the last. Compared to 20/ 30 years ago, development platforms are so easy to acquire and the cost is relatively low. College graduates from China might just be making a fun toy w/o knowing they have created something unique and special. However, some products need to be improved in terms of form factor and packaging. More importantly, the innovators will need a good marketing team to help out putting the product into market.

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.
