+ - MIT Laptop Jumps Price but adds features! :)

pickyouupatnine writes: According to this story on ARS Technica, the $100 MIT Laptop is now going to cost $140. It has a new name — it'll now be called the Children's Machine 1 (CM1). But the added price comes with features! The laptop will now come with a 400 MHz AMD processor, 512 Megs of Flash storage, an SD card slot, mic and headphone jacks, a built in camera, and built-in wireless. OH.. It will also come with an 8-inch LCD at a 1280x900 resolution.

Next up from the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) — free corrective lenses for all the children who went blind trying to read the text on an 8-inch screen at 1280x900.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
