While I know rear seat entertainment is basically an un-stoppable trend, I think there is something lost. The car becomes a substitute for home, except for the driver and possibly the front seat passenger. Instead of the "Are we there yet, Daddy?" questions, you may get the complaint "But the movie isn't over yet, Daddy!" or "Wait! A Tweet is coming in now!" when you arrive. Whatever happened to using trips as a way to see the world beyond your home and encouraging your children to do the same? And I will admit that along the way, I and my siblings counted Burma-Shave signs way back when. :)

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.
