Do we need computers strapped to us all the time?
Go out and enjoy the beauty of the world and leave the gadgets behind.

The point is to give a cheap computer to children's so they "get inspired" while doing simple stuff on schools, they dont need the "Wifis" so they get distracted web browsing or other related stuff.

This is a step in the right direction! Let's just hope a big company doesn't buy them out and startselling them for $299 *caugh* apple.

Actually he says right in the video that it would allow kids to get onto twitter or facebook...

This is the kind of technology with a simple idea that we should look forward to, instead of big corporations who just throw us some overpriced shiny stuff with features that we may never need and whose purpose is just to impress other people.

I mean come on...I woke up one morning just to find out Google News has 5+ articles about Apple releasing a white version of iphone/ipad. WOW!

It is meant as a teaching tool for kids to learn about computers. It is not meant as an everyday computer. The idea is it is simple enough that you can learn what is going on in the computer.

Did U NOT read the article?! Do you understand the point of it? For every thing there is a season. They will play in the sunshine and they wiill learn. Thumb drive--awesome... Linux... Free!! 2x(awesome). a computer priced for the poor--that is designed to encourage them to program. What is WRONG with you? What could one do with this in developing countries?!

Some people. :-(
