The loss of life was regrettable. However, it should be noted that this tragedy would not have been possible if, the engineer lived in a house, did not take his work home with him, could tell the security official to take a flying leap, and leave for another job. At 25, the engineer probably said, there goes my career because I made a mistake therefore. . .

Its a pity that MP's dont have the same honour! or may be we will have to get some of the "security officials" to look over the House of Commons security and finances !

It's pretty common in Asia for people to "take their own" lives off a tall building. Now, if you BELIEVE they did this to themselves, in a ruthless society where human life has next to zero value, particularly in the common, shady, world of counterfeiters and gangsters, you are pretty naive. And, like every computing platform before, Apple is blowing it by not licensing their designs to create ubiquity, particularly to the Chinese - 3M units WW of iPhone is chump change.

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.
