It is encouraging that they are apparently looking at both PCs and Video since these could (and probably will) interfere with each other if allowed to continue to develop completely independently.

Differing number of channels are available in different geographic regions, but there is a portion of the 60GHz band that is available for unlicensed use worldwide.

I am wondering if this will be street legal in Europe and Asia? It seems like a good mix of high speed and local wireless connections. I wonder how expensive the transceivers will be? Does it use internet type of addressing or something else like Bluetooth association of devices for connecting?

The various extensions are good. 60GHz will be good for home use. It may be a problem in deployment in a larger scale. What's the maximum coverage distance with beamforming?

"As many as half the top PC makers will use 60 GHz in notebooks in 2012, Giordano predicted." ! :) Actually what matters is how many PCs will be shipped with a 60GHz wireless chip. I cant see that number touching 50% in next 3 years. Anyway its good, that they have aligned their efforts with IEEE 802.11ad working group. At-least there is a wild chance of this taking off.

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.
