I have a Toshiba netbook, great machine. Does exacly what it was designed to do. What's unfortunate is that it is an ideal platform for watching your DVD movies on the airplane or whatever but there is no provision to "legally copy" your purchased movies on to the harddrive. I know all the DRM gets in the way but it seem like a crime to not exploint the technology more. Yes, I know you can buy/rent movies on-line but a lot of those services do not work overseas (like my Netflix account). Something to think about.

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.
