Call me paranoid, but I want my "wireless wallet" to require me to confirm the charge in some fashion. Otherwise I see "wireless pick-pockets" and similar scams arising. A cell phone already includes a keypad and display, so it could show the charge amount and you then confirm (or even enter a PIN) via the keypad. But that would have to be separate from my service provider, otherwise they would charge for purchases just like they now charge for texting and everything else.

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.
