Ethan Zuckerman blogs “It's cute. It's orange. It's got bunny ears. An update on the One Laptop Per Child project.” They are cute. The OLPC project intends to sell these in lots of millions to third-world countries and school systems. They intend for these to be owned by school children and distinctly colored to disuade commercial trade in them.
This will be quite the challenge. These aren't laptops as we use them, but internet appliances. I could envision lots of uses for them.
