Jie Liu, MSR: Are there any privacy implications if this is a system service? Can an application snoop on the prefetch of other apps?

Answer: We haven’t considered that explicitly.

Thomas Moscibroda, MSRA: Question about accuracy prediction, which is based on feedback from app itself. Isn’t this easily game-able? Couldn’t an app say that prefetch is always successful to increase prefetching.

Answer: Yes, but we are targeting apps that want to be good citizens.

Nitya, Motorola: Can the app provide hints about the chunkability of the data?

Answer: Since the prefetching logic is provided by app as a callback, it can chunk however it wants.

Is there a notion of collaboration across apps? Can two apps prefetch twitter feeds, etc?

Answer: We haven’t considered this explicitly yet.
