wearables and sensors

It's no surprise that wearables and sensors would be a strong draw at CES, given that this has been the year of the wearable/sensor and given that CES is inclined to displaying that kind of flashy gadget/gizmo to begin with. TVs and PCs are great, and I'm sure there will always be a place for them--there's plenty of space for a whole rang eof devifces at CES, that's why it's CES--but nothing spells the future more than wearables and sensors, at least not these days.

I'm not a huge TV fan but here's the issue.  When I want to relax, catch up on this new season of Downton Abby, NCIS and such.. I'm excited to be able to do so literally anywhere.  I am not going to spend hours and hours in front of the boob tube mind you but the concept of watching what I want, when I want is pretty exciting.

Funny thing is.. the current state of television is not much better than the old stand up and switch your channels.  Just tonight, it was painful to find PBS on Comcast! We texted a friend to ask what channel this show was on and even then... setting up a recording was like the old VHS days.  I accidentally taped some what is garcinia cambogia show by Dr Oz thinking it was Person of Interest!?  All to wasy to make a mistake.  I'd love it if Comcast knew a bit of my watching habits and suggested shows or asked me if I really wanted to do that.  I was ADD and not paying attention.

Anyway, I'm glad to see the technology advancing.  I just pray the big networks don't battle it out and make it difficult like they usually do when it comes to watching your favorite shows.

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.
