Just read an article by Andy Grove lamenting on the loss of manufacturing jobs in the US. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-07-01/how-to-make-an-american-job-before-it-s-too-late-andy-grove.html Interestingly, he pointed to Foxconn as a post-child of the success story of the Asian manufacturing industry. He mentioned the spade of suicide at Foxconn yet continued to praise how great Foxconn is at providing jobs and how it dwarfs any US electronic company in size. It did not occur to Andy that the economy (China) in which Foxconn created all these sweat-shop jobs are facing much serious troubles than the economy (US) which presumably lost these jobs.

Why doesnt international community take a look this. Why doesnt APPLE and HP divert their projects from china to other democratic countries like India ? This is ridiculous policy from chinese policy makers.

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.
