re: "Subconscious mode" for smartphones could extend battery life by over 50 percent

The notion of running slowly when nothing is happening and then responding when potentially relevant headers are detected and speeding up makes a lot of sense. This would be especially beneficial in environments lacking signals - which currently seem to cause the phones to go into overdrive seeking a signal. The effort fails and the battery is quickly drained for no reason. If nothing relevant is happening, the slow clock nap is a great strategy.

Sounds cool but there is no enough information provided to tell whether this actually works and how. I guess we have to wiat to read the patent ;-)...Kris

There is a sleep mode in WiFi which enables a client device to tell the AP that it will not be listening until it awakes and polls the AP. Since this discussion doesn't even acknowledge that capability, I'm skeptical of any of the rest of the claims within the article.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
