LXer: $100 One Laptop Per Child could sell to public

Published at LXer:

Obtaining bulk orders from developing world governments and institutions remains the main priority for the organization marketing the linux-running, crank-powered laptop. However, a scheme is currently being worked out to allow the general public to purchase the machine starting in 2008.

i think more or "all of the time" they must be taught what they can do with what they already have at that kind of early stage instead of communicating and connecting "universally" ... that a little bit unsightfull i guess ... probably doing that at a much later stage ...

//if not ... those things could be as crappy(although i believe they are not intended to be that) as google and youtube ... you get what i mean ...

>> ""It will stimulate their interest in looking further - not waiting for some teacher or an adult.""

probably we would be surprise to see any(or too many) teachers or adults who are not to our likings anyway ...
