Remember the One Laptop Per Child thing? Remember the nifty technology that went into the hardware (new display tech, a crank) and software (Sugar UI) of the XO devices, to be produced in developing companies? Do you recall yourself or some one else saying,"Wow, I'd like one of those.", or even "Hey, I'd pay double price just to get one, it is a charity after all!"?

Yeah, the window opens finally on 12 Nov: http://www.xogiving.org/

Note for the Escape Pod crowd: As far as we have been informed, no qubits or vats of smelly goop were harmed in the manufacture of these units. XO != BiQuCo, at least not yet.

And now for some breakfast.

A little know piece of info posted on /. about the one laptop per child thing. The organizers are now putting filtering software on the laptops. As many of the children were discovered to be looking up Pr0n.
