MIT Media Lab: $100 Laptop


This is truly an amazing invention. I would say that bigger companies like Dell, IBM, and Apple should have thought about this. And above all Bill and Melinda Gate's (Microsoft) charity and "investing in childern" (as they call it) by promoting easy learning drive is not enough until they come up with something really affordable in terms of computing products that are affordable by students in developing countries and poor neighborhoods. Otherwise all the charity will be considered an EyeWash.
MIT Media Lab: $100 Laptop: "The MIT Media Lab has launched a new research initiative to develop a $100 laptop-a technology that could revolutionize how we educate the world's children. To achieve this goal, a new, non-profit association, One Laptop per Child (OLPC), has been created. The initiative was first announced by Nicholas Negroponte, Lab chairman and
co-founder, at the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland in January 2005."
