After reading through what is now 25 pages of the Apple support discussion forum it would seem to me that there could be a couple of things going on, which may explain the intermittant and variable nature of many of the reports.....could it be the combination of N-mode diversity of Wi-Fi, 2.4-GHz versus 5-GHz wireless LAN carrier operation, an aluminum casing and a couple of antennas that is causing the problem. RF experts feel free to chime in.

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.
