11/13/2005 Archived Entry: "MIT thinks everywhere is Boston"

The Inquirer has pointed out many problems with MIT's much-ballyhooed "$100 laptop". But they missed one. Reading their article I see the objective described as "a rugged full-screen, full color laptop that's Wi-Fi enabled, 'lots' of USB ports, Linux-based, with a 500MHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 1 megapixel display."

Wi-Fi enabled? How many Starbucks do these people think exist in Africa? They need to spend more time outside of Boston (excuse me, Cambridge), and more in, say, Kapuskasing.  —brad
