There's an interesting debate internally at Powercast. While Ostaffe is convinced the best source of ambient RF power is from mobile basestations, one of his colleagues believes it's from nearby cellphones, and they did a demo when the first iPhone came out in 2007 to show that effect. However, I'd side with Ostaffe: the basestations are a more reliable and ubiquitous source. What do you think?

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.
