I would welcome the freedom to use my own cellphone as I wish rather than being locked into any particular provider. I am amazed at the really dumb laws that get passed with the apparent goal of protecting some company rather than the consumer! Way to go!

It's about time the cell phone industry is opened up, much like the wired telephone industry ws way back in the 1980s. We should be able to buy any cell phone we want to use with any provider we want. I never understood why in the US, consumers are so often herded into these walled gardens, in the past 30 years or so, and put up with it.

Sina Khanifar just alerted me that the White House just took action to make the results of federally sponsored science more open. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/response/increasing-public-access-results-scientific-research

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.
