How far do people think companies like Apple will go in the direction of securing their customers' devices? I wonder because while Wall Street may seem to appreciate better security features, end users are a mixed bag between those who care immensely about protecting themselves and those who don't seem to have especially critical information or who aren't worried about protecting it. Where will the norm lie exactly in the coming years?

"Once swallowed, the pill is powered up by electrolytes in the body to create a signal making one's entire body into an authentication token."

When I, um, "lose" my password pill unexpectedly, will Amazon send a drone helicopter to the restroom with a replacement?

I think our IT deparment would decline to assist with password recovery in this case.

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.
